When tween-aged Minato starts to behave strangely, his mother, Saori, suspects the school has something to do with it. Upon questioning, Minato confesses his teacher, Hori, is the source of his troubles. Saori begins a relentless campaign to expose Hori’s problematic teaching practices and the school that appears to be covering it up. But Minato and his newest friend have a different tale to tell. Yet as the story unfolds through the eyes of various characters, nothing is as it seems. Acclaimed director Hirokazu Koreeda tenderly brings to life Yuji Sakamoto’s layered screenplay and features legendary composer Ryuichi Sakamoto’s final screen work before his death. With its Cannes debut this year, the film was awarded Best Screenplay and the Queer Palm.
