A film PREVIEW showing as part of the Borderlines Film Festival
Saori becomes aware her eleven-year-old son Minato is behaving strangely and goes to his school to confront the alleged cause, a bullying teacher. But nothing is straightforward.
Different viewpoints intervene to tell the story anew. Homophobia, intolerance, family dysfunction, rumour-mongering are all factors, but are not the kernel of the truth. That lies elsewhere and is revealed only gradually, with humanity and hope.
This is the last film to be scored by the late composer Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Borderlines Film Festival 2024 is bigger than ever
Britain’s biggest rural film festival, one of the six largest film festivals in the UK, is set to take place from 1 – 17 March with a record number of screenings and events, just short of 300 in total. Borderlines covers a large area of country with 23 venues across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Malvern and the Marches, from mixed-arts centres and art deco picture palaces to remote village halls.
Supported by the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery, the Elmley Foundation and Hereford City Council, Borderlines offers audiences the opportunity to watch some of the very best new releases, including Oscar and BAFTA nominated titles like All of Us Strangers and The Zone of Interest, American Fiction and Anatomy of a Fall (winner of the 2023 Palme d’Or at Cannes).
