Following his Cannes Jury Prize-winning drama HARMONIUM, director Koji Fukada returns with “another emotionally palpable tale of perception” (IONCINEMA). Ichiko (Mariko Tsutsui) is a private home nurse who has worked for the elderly matriarch of the Oisho family for years. Unexpectedly, her quiet, routine life is shattered after one of the Oisho’s teenage daughters is kidnapped. When it is revealed that the kidnapper is none other than Ichiko’s nephew, her life begins to unravel in this taut thriller from one of Japan’s most celebrated current cinematic masters.
Nominated for the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival, Koji Fukada's “deft and absorbing” A GIRL MISSING has been hailed as a “satisfying slow-burn drama expertly told” (Screen Daily).
