Romance is a business. Family, friends, followers. All available for hire. A man is hired to impersonate the missing father of a twelve year old girl.

Shot in Japan, with Japanese actors, in the Japanese language, Oscar-nominated auteur Werner Herzog brings to the screen a unique angle to recurring themes around people chasing impossible dreams.

'In Japan, the rent-a-family business offers everything from a cure for loneliness to a coverup for a secret shame. Herzog meets the man who replaces absent or disappointing relatives in this sensitive new drama.' - Katherine McLaughlin, Sight & Sound
