A sentimental story of self-liberation and transformation—in the full-length version of Atsuko Hirayanagi’s short of the same title, starring Josh Hartnett as an English teacher living in Tokyo.
The drama-comedy tells the story of Setsuko Kawashima, a lonely, chain-smoking office lady in Tokyo who is past her prime. After deciding to take an English class, she discovers a new identity in her American alter ego, 'Lucy,' and falls for her instructor, John. When John suddenly disappears, Setsuko earnestly sets out on a quest to find him, eventually leading her to the outskirts of Southern California.
Director Atsuko Hirayanagi. USA, Japan, 2017. 16+
