SYNOPSIS: Based on Kazuki Sakuraba’s Naoki Award-winning novel, My Man is, “a chilling Japanese spin on Lolita.” With her entire family is killed in the 1993 Hokkaido earthquake and tsunami disaster, Hana is taken in by distant relative Jungo. Driven by trauma and isolation the relationship crosses the line into the sexual as they fight desperately to protect the strange semblance of family they have created. Things take a murderous turn when the townspeople begin to suspect. A shocking and provocative masterpiece. Trailer
