Part of the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2020 Season
Having relocated from the big city to a rural town, timid Yura (Yura Sato) feels isolated and unenthused by his new Christian school. Initially sceptical of the new worshipping practice, he begins to have apparitions of a tiny, mute Jesus who seems to answer his prayers. But he should be careful what he wishes for… This debut feature from prodigal director Hiroshi Okuyama is a surreal, whimsical look at organised religion through the eyes of a puzzled child.
