Every year, in Japan, 150,000 children are torn away from a parent in the aftermath of a divorce. Now grown, a generation of young adults is demanding that the cycle of parental alienation ends with them.
After an acrimonious divorce, Rita Shishikura’s husband forbade her from ever again seeing their son, Hizuki. The resulting alienation from her only child sent Rita’s life into a tailspin that eventually led to a suicide attempt, and resuscitation in the Emergency Room. Through the process of recovery, Rita’s self-pity turns into a desire to see her son again, sending her on a journey that brings unexpected allies into her world. Along with her newfound friends - from a group striving to reunite children with their parents - Rita discovers both the will to live and her purpose in life.
