The film with Kento Yamazaki and Mayu Matsuoka follows a screenwriter who has difficulty getting an audience for his theater group. One day he sees a fashion student who dreams of becoming an actress, wears the same sneakers as he does, and starts talking to her. A love between the two begins when Saki supports Nagata in his dreams and engages more and more in theater to close the gap between ideal and reality.
Isao Yukisada (Go, Parade) was the director of the film that Shunsuke Koga produced. Naohiko Sakamoto was the executive producer.
"Although many film releases have been postponed due to the COVID 19 outbreak, we are excited to be able to deliver the highly anticipated film to households across Japan and around the world as part of our growing Prime Member content palette," said Takashi Kodama , Content Manager at Amazon Prime Video Japan. "We hope Prime members worldwide will enjoy this great love film made by talented director Isao Yukisada and actors like Kento Yamazaki and Mayu Matsuoka."
