Global Film Series: After the Storm

November 10, 2020 @ 6:00 am - November 11, 2020 @ 4:30 am

Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota (Hiroshi Abe) wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother (Kirin Kiki) and beautiful ex-wife (Yoko Make) seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son (Taiyo Yoshizawa) — until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again.
This film is part of the Global Film Series, a collaboration between the NC State University Libraries and the Office of Global Engagement. The film is co-presented with NC State’s Japan Center.
