Risa is often bullied at school by her classmates, so it comes as a surprise to her when she and cute, popular Izumi suddenly become best friends. But Izumi is not as innocent as her appearance would suggest. Thus, a high school film about friendship takes a sharp turn. Emotions, excitement, drama and thrills make an impressive debut.
Ryohei WATANABE was born in Ehime Prefecture in 1987. He graduated from Ritsumeikan University and took writing courses at the Writers' Association of Japan. In 2010 he won a prize in a TV Asahi competition that helped him finance his first feature film, SHADY. He also works as a freelancer and assistant director for commercials.
