100 Yen Love
Powered by Ando Sakura’s tour de force performance, this shoot-from-the-hip character study stars the Shoplifters actress as 32-year-old slacker Ichiko. She still lives with her parents, without a job or any ambition in life. After a blowout fight with her sister, she leaves home and lives hand-to-mouth working at a 100-yen ““dollar store”“. When she becomes enamored with a local boxer, she starts a life-changing journey of redemption and empowerment. Ando’s transformation from lazy loser to driven heroine, for which she won rounds of Japan’s Best Actress awards, is a knockout punch that will leave audiences cheering in the aisles.
