    • Synopsis
    • Three sisters - Sachi, Yoshino and Chika - live together in a large house in the city of Kamakura. When their father - absent from the family home for the last 15 years - dies, they travel to the countryside for his funeral, and meet their shy teenage half-sister. Bonding quickly with the orphaned Suzu, they invite her to live with them. Suzu eagerly agrees, and a new life of joyful discovery begins for the four siblings...

      After Like Father, Like Son (Jury Prize, Cannes FF) and Nobody Knows (Best Actor Prize, Cannes FF) Kore-eda Hirokazu returns with another sensitive and poetic tale of love and family ties.
