AFTER THE STORM

by Hirokazu Koreeda

A novelist-turned-private detective tries to get back on the good graces of his ex-wife and their 12-year-old son, even though his gambling addiction keeps undermining his attempts to pay child support.

Synopsis

Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota (Hiroshi Abe) wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother (Kirin Kiki) and beautiful ex-wife (Yoko Make) seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son (Taiyo Yoshizawa) - until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again.
