“An impassioned and insightful debut feature..eye-opening” – Screen Daily

Fumi and Kazu are partners in love and law; they run the first law firm in Japan set up by an openly gay couple. Together for 15 years, the lawyers want to raise a family of their own in a country where their partnership has no legal recognition or protection. Driven by their own experience of being ‘outsiders’, they attract a range of clients who reveal the hidden diversity of a country that prides itself on its obedience, politeness and conformity.

This insightful documentary won the Tokyo International Film Festival BEST FILM and Splash Competition awards.

Screening preceded by Shiho Fukada‘s short HEAD TRIP.
