Directed by Ryûsuke Hamaguchi 
Starring: Kotone Furukawa, Katsuki Mori, Fusaka Urabe, Ayumu Nakajima 

Three short stories about three women dealing with the problems of modern relationships in different situations. An unexpected love triangle, a failed seduction, and a chance encounter with the past. Propelled by coincidence and imagination, and guided by love’s gentle current, acclaimed director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi (Drive My Car) returns with an enchanting triptych that spins mundane encounters into a world of infinite possibilities. 

Winner of Silver Bear, Berlin Film Festival 2021 

Introduced by Dr Mel Lang, Reader in Social Sciences at Edge University and former journalist who lived and worked in Japan for more than decade. Mel reflects on her own story and how it intersects with the three told in this film.
