Dad's Lunch Box
Masakazu Fukatsu, 2017 (76m)
A father (Toshimi Watanabe) decides to start making a bento box (lunch box) for his daughter Midori (Rena Takeda) before she heads off to high school every day. At first, the experiment doesn’t go so well - the food isn’t great, and one day the fish even turns out to be rotten. However, the father decides to stick with it, and before long his culinary skills start to bloom. Midori, meanwhile, tries to navigate the challenges of being a teenager. With father and daughter busy living their own lives, the daily bento box soon becomes an important daily ritual for them both.
