Award-winning filmmaker Kore-eda Hirokazu explores what it means to be human through the experiences of an unlikely heroine: an Air Doll. Appearing in her second Japanese film after Linda Linda Linda, acclaimed Korean actress Bae Du Na stars as an inflatable sex doll that comes to life in the aesthetically and emotionally beguiling fantasy drama based on Goda Yoshiie's manga. Breathing life and charm into her quirky character, Bae Du Na delivers a charming performance that is both whimsical and heartbreaking, and daringly bares all for the film's nude scenes. Arata (Snakes and Earrings), Itsuji Itao (Love Exposure), and Odagiri Joe (Warrior and the Wolf) play the three men who open her eyes to the compassion and cruelty of being human.
Nozomi (Bae Du Na) is an inflatable air doll, nothing more than a sex object for her lonely, doting owner Hideo (Itao Itsuji), but she gradually develops self-awareness. One day, while her owner is at work, she steps out of the apartment for the first time. Leaving the grasps of her owner, the wide-eyed doll ventures out into a poetic new world full of curious personalities and adventures, and falls headfirst in love with dour video store clerk Junichi (Arata).
