Two years after his wife’s unexpected death, Yusuke Kafuku, a renowned stage actor and director, receives an offer to direct a production of Uncle Vanya at a theater festival in Hiroshima. There, he meets Misaki Watari, a taciturn young woman assigned by the festival to chauffeur him in his beloved red Saab 900. As the production’s premiere approaches, tensions mount amongst the cast and crew, not least between Yusuke and Koji Tatasuki, a handsome TV star who shares an unwelcome connection to Yusuke’s late wife. Forced to confront the painful truths raised from his past, Yusuke begins – with the help of his driver — to face the haunting mysteries his wife left behind. Rated: NR.
