Sumiko 22


Sumiko 22 is the latest work by the filmmaking unit Shidoromodori and features Haruna Hori in her first film role in five years.

We follow Sumiko Shizuoka, a twenty-something-year-old who quit her first job just after four months. Her new life is spent recalibrating her sense of self.

How does she do this?

In a series of chuckle-inducing vignettes based on director Sawako Fukuoka’s own experiences, we see the realistic struggles of Sumiko who spends her days talking to herself and others about ideas, both vague and specific, that ultimately drive her towards what she finds important – mostly her cat Okoge and the foods she likes – and how she wants to live her life.
