From the director of Thermae Romae and Color Me True comes a wild comic fantasy based on Mineo May’s popular manga. In a luxurious, kingdom-like Tokyo lives the Momomi, the son of the corrupt governor and the possessor of striking feminine beauty. He, like all Tokyoites, looks down on the unsophisticated neighboring prefectures, especially Saitama. When mysterious student Rei transfers into the private academy, the spark of attraction soon lights the fuse for a war between the prefectures.

A lunatic satire of the universal tensions between urban and rural; overflowing with energy, hilarity, and over-the-top action.

Screening preceded by Shiho Fukada‘s short HER SUSHI.
