Close-Knit

When her mother disappears from home - not for the first time - 11-year-old Tomo finds herself once again taken in by her loving uncle Makio. This time things are a little different, as Makio is no longer living alone - he’s instead sharing his home with his partner Rinko, a transgender woman. The situation is initially confusing for Tomo and Rinko, with both finding themselves spending a lot of time with an unexpected roommate. However, they quickly bond over food, video games, and knitting. This unlikely family grows ever closer, but they find themselves wondering how long it can last before Tomo’s mother returns home...
