NON's comment in regards to participating in the Tokyo International Film Festival
"I'm so excited that this film was selected for the Tokyo International Film Festival.
I'm also feel so grateful that the festival is able to be held this year.
Films can relate to the lives of the people who watch them.
When you watch a film, it enters you through your eyes and ears and are engraved in you as memories.
This film and playing the role of Mitsuko has become very important to me.
I would be so happy if you watch Mitsuko, Tada-kun, A, and the others and feel some sort of connection to the characters. I can't wait for you to see. "

Mitsuko Kuroda is a 31-year old woman completely content on being alone (NON).
There is a reason she is able to have fun on her own. She has the counselor "A" communicating with her inside her head.
Whenever she has trouble dealing with others or she's feeling lost, she knows "A" will always give her the right answer.
She thought this lonely, yet peaceful relationship with "A" would last until she felt in love with the young salaryman, Tada-kun (Kento Hayashi).
Although, she has become used to a life of loneliness and unable to produce the courage she might have had towards love in her 20's, she believes that the feelings with Tada-kun are mutual and, although she struggles with herself, tries to take one step closer... 【「Watashi wo Kuitomete」Film Information】
