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.

Hirokazu Kore-eda

The Japanese director follows the tradition of Japanese cinema, characteristic for its humanism, compassion and understanding. He has made several documentaries and is well-known among audiences as well as critics thanks to his live-action debut Maborosi. His following films also regularly score at festivals worldwide.
