From the director of The Great Passage, Yuya Ishii
A heartwarming comedy that's guaranteed to lift your spirits!
"Mitsuko Delivers"   (109 MINS, 2011)

Mitsuko (Riisa Naka) is a young woman who believes everything will be okay and always tries to help those around her. One day, she met an American man and wanted to help him. They became involved in a relationship and she moved with him to California. A little later, her boyfriend left her and she returned to Japan alone.

Now, Mitsuko is nine-months pregnant, unmarried and almost broke. She has to move out of her apartment but she doesn't know where she will go. She'll visit an elderly woman who was her parents' landlord many years ago and will also see again the boy (Aoi Nakamura) that held a life-long crush on her.
