Film description

Teenage Cocoa’s father is addicted to gambling and her brother is a loser, so she is the one burdened with closing the gap in their monthly household budget. The determined and highly intelligent girl works part time selling hot-dogs in a rundown amusement park and as an actress in peculiar films for fetishists. She dreams to get a chance that would allow her to study in Tokyo, which in her situation seems an unreachable goal.

A fresh look at the coming-of-age genre, which brings up a reflection on the economic conditions of life in contemporary Japan and asks questions on the situation of young people in Japanese society. Though, the director is far from sombre moralizing: crucial themes are treated with lightness and sensibility. Aya Kitai, who plays the main role, consistently builds her character – an energetic girl able to face upcoming difficulties.
