One day, a life-size, inflatable sex doll Hideo suddenly comes to life. Without her owner knowing, she walks around town and falls in love with Junichi. Hideo starts to date Junichi and gets a job at the same video store where he works. Everything seems to be perfect—until the unexpected happens.

MUBI's take

With his trademark mix of tenderness and unexpected comedy, Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda (Shoplifters) explores the meaning of love and relationships in this quirky story of an “air doll” that comes to life. The loneliness of life in the city is perfectly captured with a melancholy beauty.
