From acclaimed director Ayumu Watanabe (Children of the Sea) and STUDIO4°C (Tekkonkinkreet, Mind Game) comes a heart-warming and moving comedy-drama with touches of magical realism. Fortune Favours Lady Nikuko is about an unconventional family and the bonds that they share in their sleepy seaside town.

Brash single mother Nikuko is well-known for her bold spirit, much to the embarrassment of Kikuko, her pensive yet imaginative daughter. In contrast to her mother, Kikuko wants nothing more than to fit in as she navigates the everyday social dramas of middle school. Life in the harbour is peaceful until a shocking revelation from the past threatens to uproot the pair’s tender relationship.

Screenings of Fortune Favours Lady Nikuko will be preceded by a special preview of an eye-catching short series from Ushio Tazawa (Your Name), the charming Deiji Meets Girl.
