A heartfelt and sensitive anti-rom com about a woman torn between independence and her family and society’s expectations.
Toko Miuri shines as Kasumi, a young call-centre worker who lives with her close-knit family. Kasumi’s mother is desperate for her to marry, going as far as setting her up on dates with potential suitors. But the truth is Kasumi is asexual and has no interest in love or physical intimacy. This sweet and breezy film playfully defies genre conventions, as we witness her navigating arranged dates, new career opportunities and chance encounters with old friends on an engaging quest to live life on her own terms.
