Nana is a 19-year-old girl living in a corner of Tokyo. Her mother, who is in hospital, and Marin, the girl she loves, are the only people she can trust. Nana secretly works at a sex club to make money to take care of her sick mother. One day, she confesses her secret part-time job to Marin. Marin is shocked and their relationship becomes strained. Director NISHIHARA Takashi’s previous film “Blue Ray” was screened at OAFF 2013. He created “Starting Over” with a small crew and limited budget, spending six months on shooting. The film quietly depicts the subtleties of the girls’ emotions. Lead actress AKIZUKI Mika delivers a remarkable performance.
