YAMAMOTO Miki

[Japan]

The piece captures the disintegrating relationships between a family and other people sparked by a sudden disappearance of the husband. The once happy family – with a family-loving Japanese husband, a beautiful foreigner wife, and their daughter – faces issues when confronted with this tragedy. The story is told from the perspective of the middle school neighbor, Natsumi, with a unique touch akin to a movie storyboard.
