Storyline

Yuto Kobayashi stars as a down-on-his-luck 16-year-old named Ryo Kawai. Ryo grew up fatherless, and has been trying to make a living by working at a local convenience store ever since his mother was hospitalized with a prolonged illness. Unable to support himself on his meager earnings, he has to resort to sneaking money from the cash register and stealing rice balls to get by-a habit which eventually gets him fired. Just when it seems things can't get any worse, his mother dies and he's stuck with a hefty bill for the hospital and funeral expenses. Obviously unable to pay, but determined to send his mother off himself, Ryo steals her corpse and places it in a small rowboat. After the makeshift funeral ceremony, Ryo heads off to Tokyo on a journey to meet his absentee father. Written by Anonymous

Wakaranai aka Where Are You (2009) unusual drama. Blankness Realistic and silent, slow movie. There's not much dialog in it. Story keeps revolving about this boy name Ryo.Ryo is kind, hard worker. His life falling apart, a teenager who's got all this pressure at one time.And his everyday survival thru merely casuals troubles. Starting with meal and ending with rent that you have where to sleep. Story shows every choice he have to made to keeps him going forward.

Its not shocking drama, or tear jerker. Its slow motion trip thru boys behavior in his hard life everyday surviving. Recommend For more movies http://www.imdb.com/user/ur23690923/?ref_=nv_usr_prof_0
