For middle-aged apartment dweller Hideo (Itsuji Itao), companionship-and baser needs-were met by the blow-up doll he named "Nozomi." One day when he was at work, however, Nozomi (Bae Doona) amazingly came to life, and ventured out into the world. Falling into a video store job, and a relationship with a co-worker (Arata), Nozomi will find that humanity isn't without it's costs, in Hirokazu Kore-eda's subversive take on the manga "Kûki Ningyô." 125 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Japanese; Subtitles: English; featurettes; theatrical trailer. In Japanese with English subtitles.
