TRUE MOTHERS

Kiyokazu and Satoko are a middle-class couple grappling with infertility. One day, they happen across Baby Baton, an association matching couples with mothers unable to raise their natural children.

Six years later, Kiyokazu and Satoko are living happily with their son Asato when their life is shattered by the arrival of Hikari, a young woman claiming to be Asato's biological mother and demanding his return. As tensions mount, Satoko grows more and more emboldened to defend her family.

Kawase’s adaptation of Mizuki Tsujimura’s novel, weaves moral drama, young romance, social exposé, and even thriller elements into an emotionally intense and devastating experience.
