Jiro (Keisuke Koide) usually spends his birthday alone, but this year, he gets the gift of a lifetime when a goofy but beautiful girl (Haruka Ayase) celebrates the occasion with him — only to vanish mysteriously at the end of the night. A year later, she returns with bizarre news: She’s a cyborg from the future who’s been sent to protect him. Writer-director Jae-young Kwak blends sci-fi with romantic comedy in this unique Japanese charmer.
Kwak Jae-yong (born 22 May 1959) is a South Korean film director and screenwriter. He studied physics at Kyunghee University. He achieved success with his debut film Watercolor Painting in a Rainy Day in 1989, but the failure of his next two movies led to eight years of unemployment before a comeback with the smash-hit film My Sassy Girl in 2001. He is known for his limitless fondness of love stories set in a mix of different genres.—Wikipedia
