This short movie shakes my heart. This is about Japanese discrimination against black people. Main character is a black boy with Japanese mother. His black father already died. When he goes to new elementary school in country side of Japan, he is made fun of his skin color by his classmates. He doesn't like the situation and run away from the school, but his mother encourages him to go to school.
When I saw it, I felt like crying. I couldn't believe that it is real of Japan. I think that there is no racial discrimination in Japan. However, this movie expresses reality. Moreover, I was surprised that one of my classmates has the same experience.
I will explain from the point of screen writing. This movie's construction is very nice. This is overcoming type movie. That is a main character has problem, but s/he overcome it at the last. Speaking of this movie, the boy has problem that he is black and being discriminated. Once, he runs from the situation. However, his mother gives him a chance to overcome the situation. In this point, her role is important. Without her, he will never be able to conquer the problem.
