The story of four siblings who lack some of their emotions.


The elder brother, Hikaru has the emotion of ‘JOY’. 


Hikaru, the eldest brother, who feels no ‘joy,’ listens to the words people exchange in search of ‘words of joy’. 


The eldest sister, Himiko, is conflicted by her lack of anger and throws herself into the revolution. 


The second brother, Taiyo, who does not understand what ‘joy’ is, repeatedly crosses paths with his girlfriend. 


Hanako, the second sister who has no feeling of ‘loneliness’, resonates with her homeroom teacher, Fujimaki, and makes an unexpected decision.



The directors are a unique quartet of Japanese directors: Satoko Yokohama, Gakuryu Ishii, Takuto Kato, and Fumio Moriya.


The film is a small-scale art house film and will be released simultaneously worldwide in London, New York, Toronto, and throughout Japan.


cogitoworks Ltd, the production/distribution company of this film, is building relationships directly with theaters around the world 


without sales companies and plans to continue releasing new Japanese films a year simultaneously around the world.
