Based on a josei manga series by Yumi Unita, the film stars Kenichi Matsuyama as a young office worker named Daikichi who notices a little girl named Rin (Mana Ashida) at his grandfather’s funeral. He soon discovers that she’s actually the illegitimate daughter of his grandfather by an unknown mother, and that there’s really no one else around to care for her due to the social stigma attached. Daikichi decides to take it upon himself to raise her, even though he has no wife to help him and no experience with children.
“Usagi Drop” will be released by Showgate in Japan on August 20, 2011.
