Ryota is a successful architect who spends long hours at work to provide for his wife and six-year-old son. His life is carefully planned and nothing is left to chance. But that all shatters when Ryota finds out that his son was switched with another boy in the maternity ward. Both families must decide what to do next. This intimate drama follows the Japanese tradition of films examining family relationships, and poses questions which are hard to answer.
The films of the today's best-known Japanese director are characteristic for their humanism, compassion and understanding. His films have enjoyed success at festivals worldwide. Like a Father, Like a Son (2013) won a Jury Prize in Cannes and two Japan Academy Prizes.
