Capturing Dad
(チチを撮りに / Chichi o tori ni)

Two young sisters embark on a trip to visit their estranged father who is dying of cancer, setting out to fulfil their mother’s request to capture a photo of him. Ryota Nakano’s award-winning debut feature film is a charming story about two sisters’ journey to find out about the father they knew very little of.

父親が女を作って家を出てしまったために、母親と3人暮らしの生活を長らく送ってきたフリーターと女子高生の姉妹。ところが、既に離婚した父の死期が迫っているとの話を耳にした母から、その父に会いに行き、顔写真を撮影してきて欲しいと頼まれる。しぶしぶ電車を乗り継いで出掛けてみると、父は既に他界していただけでなく、人生の修羅場が待ち受けていた。
