Movie Info

A young man struggles for survival and understanding under desperate circumstances in this independent drama from filmmaker Masahiro Kobayashi. Kawai (Yuto Kobayashi) is a teenager who grew up poor in a wealthy part of Japan; he never knew his father, and his mother has become gravely ill. Kawai has a job at a grocery store, but with his mother in the hospital, he's found it all but impossible to keep up with the bills, and as his mother's condition worsens, Kawai lives in a flat without heat or electricity. Kawai has been stealing food from work in order to eat, and when a friend informs on him to his boss, he's fired shortly before his mother's death. Stealing her body from the hospital, Kawai gives her a primitive burial by sending her remains to sea in a boat, and he sets out to Tokyo in search of a figure from his past. Where Are You? was the first feature film for leading man Yuto Kobayashi, who is the son of director Masahiro Kobayashi.
