Two Norwegian men decide to put their filmmaker skills to a unique challenge: finding a long lost, Japanese mother.
Marius and Fredrik’s friendship has always revolved around movies. Over the years they have made a series of films, with Fredrik behind the camera and Marius as actor, all stemming from their mutual love of B-movies and genre film. Now, for the first time in their careers they have decided to make a documentary and base their work on something a little bit closer to home, Marius’ missing mother. Marius’ mother left his family when he was 5 years old and moved back to Japan, and never kept in touch. After years living with only photographs and the stories he has been told about her, he has decided to try to track her down and meet her again for the first time in 27 years. So how do you go about finding your lost mother? Where do you even start? Well, if you are Fredrik and Marius you make it into one big, crazy film project.
