Chicken Heart

Directed by Hiroshi Shimizu
Japan, 2002


Twenty-something Iwano makes a living as a “Human Punching Bag.” Thirty-something Maru sells hats in the failing family business. Fifty-something Sada is a complete social outcast. It just might be time for these three heartwarming non-conformists to get it together.
