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 Oh Lucy!

How does one reconcile reality and delusion when the illusion of love is at hand? A rather wound up and repressed Japanese woman takes a leap. An interesting twist in a woman's search for love. What crawled under my skin was how Japanese culture was portrayed...emotionally repressed, and the 'awkwardness' that ensues. I felt like I was in Japan again... Although topically a comedy, the underlying theme is loss. The actors do a magnificent job.
