Winner of Best Film in the 68th Venice International Film Festival's Orizzonti section. Director Tsukamoto Shinya, known for his Tetsuo series, cast singer-songwriter Cocco in the lead role for this extraordinary work about a mother's intense love for her child. Kotoko (Cocco) raises her infant son on her own, and her overwhelming desire to protect him causes her to develop a siege mentality.
