TSUYUKUSA | ツユクサ

Middle-aged Fumi lives a quiet seaside life, she spends her days working at a small local factory, spending time with her neighbor’s son, and attending her sober-lifestyle group. One night while driving home her car is struck by a small meteorite, the odds of which are 100 million to 1. Seeing this as a good omen, Fumi decides she should be open to new possibilities in her life, even perhaps romance…

As she becomes excited at the thought, Goro Shinoda, a man who used to be a dentist in Tokyo, moves to the town where she lives. Fumi happens to see him blowing a tune on a leaf in a park, and is touched by the lonesome figure he cuts. The two of them, each bearing the own emotional scars, awkwardly grow closer to each other, and Fumi’s life, which had been on hold until then, slowly starts moving again. A charming tale of life rekindled, TSUYUKUSA is a delightful turn from director Hideyuki Hirayama.
