Directed by: Shuichi Okita
Starring: Kengo Kora, Yuriko Yoshitaka, Sosuke Ikematsu, Ayumi Ito
2013, 160″ (comedy/drama)

In 1987, Yonosuke leaves his rural hometown to start university life in Tokyo. Good-natured, socially awkward and goofily handsome , he quickly makes friends, joins the samba club, and works as a bellhop while gingerly negotiating the terms of a relationship with a smitten young heiress, Shoko-chan. Although Yonosuke is, according to Shoko, “so normal, it’s funny,” his sweet nature lingers in the memories of everyone he meets. Cutting between university days and the present, A Story of Yonosuke shows the lasting effects of pure friendship.
