In February, dive into an ocean of feels with “Snow Flower,” a Japanese YA movie about a year in the life of bright young woman Miyuki (Ayami Nakajo).
The sad truth is, it’s her last year ever, according to her doctor’s prognosis. Just as she’s about to abandon all hope, she meets Yusuke (Hiroomi Tosaka), a kind stranger who would become the love of her life, in wintertime Tokyo.
In a serendipitous turn of events, Miyuki and Yusuke cross paths again six months after their meet cute. Her time running out, Miyuki courageously offers Yusuke a deal: be her boyfriend for one month in exchange for one million yen. Yusuke, whose café workplace desperately needs a financial boost, accepts the offer to continue supporting his younger siblings.
Based on the iconic Japanese winter song “Yuki no Hana” (Snow Flower), this feel-good YA movie opens in theaters on Feb. 6.
