Delightful story about human experience
4 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

Charming story about two sisters adventure going to America from Japan. The cultural differences and what drives them. The main character Setsuko is loveable as her alter ego Lucy who chases after life instead of being trodden on by it.

Not an action movie but a sweet tale definitely worth a look for it's raw view of life in all the shades of good and bad.
