After the death of his father, a private detective struggles to find child support money and reconnect with his son and ex-wife.
Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother and beautiful ex-wife seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son – until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again.

“The film has a special warmth and grace. It unfolds slowly, sneaks up on big questions about intertwined mysteries of family and personal destiny, and pretty much answers them.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
“There is such intelligence and delicacy in Koreeda’s film-making, such wit and understated humanity.” – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
The bar and cafe at Hull Truck is open all day, so why not come along early to grab a drink and a snack? Doors to the screening room usually open around ten minutes before the performance starts.
