Message from Filmmaker

After making 20 short films, this is my first attempt at a feature. I believe that there are things that only I, who am also a actor, can express.I hope that you will enjoy watching the hard work of “Euglena” and I would be happy if you could think a little bit about the parking violation system in Japan.
