Ryota and his sister Chinami come to their parents' house every summer to commemorate the tragic death of their eldest brother who drowned fifteen years ago. The house is suffused in a gloomy atmosphere and everything has remained the same as it was on that day. Within a single summer day, the family drama is slowly revealed. When they all sit at the dinner feast, it becomes clear that grief and animosity bind this family as tightly as love.

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 have also enjoyed success at festivals worldwide. His second-to-latest film Shoplifters won a Palme d'Or at Cannes.
