Would you choose your natural son, or the son you believed was yours after spending 6 years together? One day Ryota and his wife get an unexpected phone call from the hospital. Their 6-year-old son, Keita, is not ‘their’ son… Ryota is forced to make a life-changing decision.

MUBI's take

Gentle master Hirokazu Kore-eda (Shoplifters) won the Jury Prize at Cannes for this heartbreaking family drama. With his signature warmth and compassion, Kore-eda cleverly stages a clash in values: as differences in class, wealth, and philosophical outlook arise from distinct upbringings.
