A Balance

Back to listing

Documentary director Yuko is working on a piece about a bullied schoolgirl’s suicide when she discovers that her father Masashi, a cram school director, has made a grave error of judgment. She struggles to make things right, but only gets drawn in deeper while her objectivity shield begins to slip... An immersive and gripping portrayal of a culture of shame where frames of reference waver.
