Description:
Each of the film's three episodes revolves around a woman in love and a series of coincidences leading the protagonists to complex personal relationships. 2021 Berlin International Film Festival Grand Jury Prize.

Ryusuke Hamaguchi's film weaves a pattern of three short stories whose evocative intertextuality resembles a musical composition in three movements. Meiko is startled when she realizes that the man who her best friend starts to have feelings for, is her ex; Sasaki plots to trick his college professor out of revenge, using his class-friend-with-benefits Nao, while Natsuko encounters a woman who seems to be someone from her past, leading the two to confess the feelings they have harboured in their hearts - stories about the complexities of relationships, told through coincidences that happen in the lives of women in love.

"These three stories were conceived as the first three in a series of seven stories with the theme of 'coincidence and imagination'. Coincidence has always been a subject of interest to me. Depicting coincidence is a manner that regards rarity as the essence of the world, rather than being based on reality. By creating a work with this title, I realized how it opens up the story in unexpected ways. Please enjoy being surprised by the unexpectedness of the world." (Ryusuke Hamaguchi)
