A Documentary Film By Kaspar Astrup Schröder
Ryuchi is a director of the Japanese company 'I Want to Cheer You Up Ltd.'. A company that rents out family, friends, colleagues or whatever one might need to help people cover up secrets and make ones life appear normal. But while Ryuichi only conceals his clients' secrets a few hours at a time, he hides his own secret 24 hours a day. On the surface, he has a straightforward family life. He is 44 years old, married and the father of two boys, and has an ordinary nine-to-five job. But Ryuchi only feels really happy when he works as someone else's family member. But his own family does not know his company, and thus he leads a double life. Will Ryuchi succeed in keeping his secret, or will he find out that he can only really help others when he has helped himself and revealed his secret double life to his family? A highly unusual story about an almost ordinary man.
