Washed-up Japanese novelist has an epiphany during a typhoon.
A prize-winning novelist has split up with his wife and is reduced to working as a private investigator. He gambles his money rather than pay child support. Then the events of a stormy night offer him a chance to reconnect with his family. Renowned director Kore-eda, maker of Our Little Sister, has produced yet another beautiful, humane, funny yet melancholy drama.
