Japan/France/Philippines 2022 | 113 mins | Cert: 15 | Director: Chie Hayakawa
Set in a near dystopian future, Japan’s government launches ‘Plan 75’, a programme encouraging the elderly to terminate their own lives, to rejuvenate the country’s rapidly-aging population. Chie Hayakawa’s remarkable debut intertwines the lives of three ordinary citizens as they face this new reality. An elderly woman, a young Plan 75 salesman and a Filipino care worker must come to terms with what it really means to live.
