BENTO HARASSMENT: Renpei Tsukamoto’s Appetizing Family Dramedy Inaugurates Three-Day Japan Cuts Hollywood November 1
A true, universal tale – full of laughter and tears – about a single mother and her high school daughter. The girl who used to call her mommy now totally ignores her. Exasperated, the mother seeks revenge by using ‘bentos’ (home-made boxed lunches) as her ‘weapon’. Regardless of what’s going on in her own life, she never fails to make her daughter a bento lunch that embarrasses her with its sugar-coated messages of love. After three long years, the final ‘bento’ message is a ‘thank you letter’ from mother to daughter. This story of a mother’s love will ring true to all teens growing up and the mothers that stand beside them.
