Having received life-saving surgery as a child paid with donations of $5 million, 17-year-old Mirai is paraded in front of the TV cameras every year to check up on his progress. Unable to deal with the pressure of the debt, he resolves to balance the books and earn the right to die, by taking on any job he can find. Mirai’s journey takes some increasingly dark, but unexpectedly optimistic paths, as he becomes involved with homelessness, hard labour, prostitution and the yakuza, in this heartfelt and melancholic story of contemporary Japan.

Part of Fanomenon, LIFF 2019’s selection dedicated to cult and genre films.
