Due to an error of the real estate office, 10th-graders Yusuke and Kei unintentionally find themselves as housemates in Yosuke’s uncle’s house while he is away – a fact that the two have to hide in order not to get expulsed from school. After accepting the situation as a necessary inconvenience, they soon become secret comrades and even discover first love. Based on a manga, SOMAI’s first feature film already shows the typical handwriting of his future filmmaking – very long takes in which the actors can give their best.

In cooperation with the Japan Foundation Tokyo and the Japan Cultural Institute in Cologne
