From Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda (Still Walking; Like Father, Like Son) comes this beautifully graceful, meticulously filmed tale of sisterly love. Three adult sisters – Sachi, Yoshino and Chika – live together in a rambling ancestral home. When they meet their smart young halfsister, Suzu they impulsively take her in, adjusting their set-up and growing to love her. But is their happiness keeping them from leaving their troubled childhoods behind? As ever, the masterful Kore-eda’s brilliance lies in taking a seemingly simple story turning it into a heartbreaking family saga of immense emotional power.
