After the death of his father, a private detective with a punishing gambling habit attempts to reconnect with his mother, ex-wife and, most crucially, his young son in this Japanese drama from the director of the sublime Our Little Sister.
Ryoto (Abe Hiroshi) used to be a novelist, but now he's a private detective scraping together the cash to fund his gambling habit, never mind child support. Stranded at his family home during a storm, Ryoto attempts to make amends with his ex-wife and son in this bittersweet tale that screened in the Un Certain Regard programme at Cannes Film Festival 2016.
