The movie draws the portrait of Taro Yamamoto, an atypical young Japanese senator who used to be a popular actor and went into politics after the disaster of Fukushima. Seven years after the catastrophe, the movie discovers the image of contemporary Japan seen through the eyes of a rebel who goes against the flow.
After the screening there will be a Q&A session with director Alain de Halleux and producer Sophie Schoukens and other guests, followed by a reception.
