Message from Filmmaker
At the time when many films depicted the sadness of homosexuality as unfulfilled, I saw the richness of love on blogs and social networking sites. I was struck by this gap, and after shooting this film, I began to think that I myself should live my life by breaking down my preconceived notions.
“This early work from director Kozue Nomoto is a remarkably written and well-paced drama about love, regrets, and the frustration and fear of expressing love.”
