Pieta in the Toilet

Nippon Connection
Japan Cuts

Art school graduate Hiroshi, having given up all his dreams, suddenly learns that he is suffering from advanced­staged cancer. At first he doesn’t seem to care about his diagnosis – until he meets a young student named Mai. PIETA IN THE TOILET is anything but a depressing cancer drama: poetic cinematography, subtle humor and an extraordinary cast make this life­affirming story truly something special. (Synopsis from Nippon Connection)
