After one of their shoplifting sessions, Osamu and his son come across a little girl in the freezing cold. At first reluctant to shelter the girl, Osamu’s wife agrees to take care of her after learning of the hardships she faces. Although the family is poor, and barely makes enough money through petty crime to survive, they seem to live happily together, until an unforeseen incident reveals hidden secrets and shakes the bonds that unite them. Full of emotion and characters of unassuming depth, this superb family drama from Kore-eda (Nobody Knows) won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 2018.
