A Bride for Rip Van Winkle

Insecure part-time teacher Nanami passively goes through life with no aim. Failing in her job, she decides to marry an online acquaintance. When hiring the mysterious Amuro to provide seat fillers for her wedding, her life takes an unexpected turn. Shunji IWAI’s return to fiction is a light-hearted and poetical coming-of-age film celebrating individual freedom. (Synopsis from Nippon Connection)
