The drama-comedy tells the story of Setsuko Kawashima (Terajima), a lonely, chain-smoking office lady in Tokyo who is past her prime. After deciding to take an English class, she discovers a new identity in her American alter ego, 'Lucy,' and falls for her instructor, John (Hartnett). When John suddenly disappears, Setsuko earnestly sets out on a quest to find him, eventually leading her to the outskirts of Southern California.Written by
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.
