SENSEI, WOULD YOU SIT BESIDE ME?

Sawako works as a manga writer. Her husband of five years, Toshio is also a manga writer but suffers from writer’s block. Sawako suspects he is having an affair but instead of confronting him directly, she finds a more creative way to drop the hint: she begins to write her new manga dealing with adultery. The manga describes Toshio having an affair with his editor and Sawako having an affair with her driving instructor.

Toshio reads Sawako's manga with fear and jealousy and so begins a comical game of romantic cat and mouse. “This wry and perceptive look at relationships and individualism seamlessly blends the artfulness of manga with real, live-action emotions for an affirmation that imitates art that imitates life”.
