“Hold on, look ahead.” Production Team[Japan]


A live-action omnibus film of a universal human drama about people living near the Tama River in the pandemic-struck spring of 2020. With the script written based on townspeople interviews, it realistically depicts people’s lives (e.g., a restaurant owner, a college student stuck in the dorm, and a couple that met on a dating app with guilty feelings). Consideration, joy, and encounters among people are documented in eight episodes.
