Set in the mid-1990s, shortly after the burst of Japan’s economic bubble, ordinary housewife and bank employee Rika (played by award-winning actress, Rie Miyazawa) turns to a life of crime by embezzling money from clients’ accounts in order to please her younger lover, college student Kota (Sosuke Ikematsu). What begins as a few yen soon spirals into large sums of money and while it looks like Rika will get away scot-free, one eagle-eyed bank supervisor has her suspicions.

Adapted from the bestselling novel by Mitsuyo Kakuta, this mischievous dark drama is directed by one of Japan’s most exciting filmmakers, Daihachi Yoshida (Funuke: Show Some Love, You Losers, The Kirishima Thing) and captures the depths one will go to get what they truly desire. The film won Best Actress at 2015 Japanese Academy Awards and the Audience Award and Best Actress following its world premiere at 2014 Tokyo International Film Festival.
