“A filmmaker to keep an eye on!” -The Young Folks

“A dark, decidedly offbeat comedy...Oh Lucy suggets Billy Wilder may have been reincarnated as a Japanese woman.”
- The Boston Herald

Setsuko is a single, emotionally unfullfilled woman, seemingly stuck with a drab, meaningless life in Tokyo. At least until she's convinced by her niece to enroll in an unorthodox English class that requires her to wear a blonde wig and take on an American alter ego named "Lucy." This new identity awakens something dormant in Setsuko, and she quickly develops romantic feelings for her American instructor, John (Josh Hartnett). When John suddently disappears from class and Setsuko learns that he and her niece were secretly dating. Setsuko enlists the help of her sister, and the pair fly halfway across the world to the outskirts of Southern California in search of the runaway couple. In a brave new world of tattoo parlors and seedy motels, family ties and past lives are tested as Setsuko struggles to preserve the deam and promise of "Lucy."
