‘Do you know who I am? 』
Do you know who I am?
Sachi Umino, 42 years old, recently became a single mother. After 42 years of living without bothering anyone, all I have left is a friend who doesn’t care, a rebellious son, and a job to support his son. One day, at a work gathering, Sachi meets a man who also has a divorced child, and they hit it off. For the first time in years, I wanted to touch a man’s hand. It may be the first time that I wanted to smell a man’s scent. Sachi falls in love while texting a man. However, the man refuses to meet because of work and childcare, and Sachi starts looking into it on SNS.
A love after 40 years old, a rebellious son, a friend who goes to the obstetrics and gynecology department… A mediocre story eventually leads to an unexpected ending. A shocking semi-fiction that asks the meaning of “believing in people” until the last frame.
