Odayaka by Nobuteru Uchida / Japan / 102 min / 2012 / PG
Two married couples live in the same apartment building in a metropolitan area: Yukako and Tatsuya, who always wanted a child but were never blessed with one, and Saeko and Noboru, with their daughter Kiyomi, born of an unintended pregnancy that led to their marriage.

On March 11, immediately following the Great East Japan Earthquake, there is nothing the wives and child can do except wait patiently for their husbands' return. Their anxiety and loneliness keep increasing.
