Screening of “The One I Long to See” Directed by JOE, and a Talk Show by the Director and KURANOO Narumi (AKB48) and NAKAMURA Tamao.
Kaede, an 11-year-old girl, suddenly collapsed in class one day and was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. For young Kaede, anticancer drug treatment and radiation therapy were nothing short of grueling, but the only emotional support she had was Yoshi, who was fighting the same disease in the bed next to her. At the same time, Kengo Yanai, who runs an IT company, loses his beloved daughter to leukemia. As a business owner, Kengo has no choice but to prioritize his work, but the loss of his daughter has brought his family, which he thought was happy, to the brink of collapse. Desperate, Kengo registers as a bone marrow donor. Having lost his family, becoming a bone marrow donor was the only thing he could be proud of in his life. A man and a girl try their best to live with the loss of their irreplaceable loved ones. What is the "person they want to see the most" that they have been searching for while leading different lives?
