"A thoroughly watchable and increasingly ENGAGING indie Japanese film, driven forward by a confident and engaging performance by Ai Ikeda." Screen Daily
"Often very FUNNY but also quite HEARTFELT, Sky is a WONDERFULLY FRESH and SHARPLY WRITTEN film with an UNFORGETTABLE debut lead performance." Libertas Film Magazine
The Story:
Izumi is a feisty high school girl whose hobby is rating newspaper articles with positive or negative values. One day, Izumi finds a wallet containing a large sum of money. Instead of returning the wallet to the owner, Izumi makes several decisions that lead her down a path of creating a newspaper containing only good news, the world of online chat rooms and a friend in need. Once Izumi decides to find out more about the wallet’s owner, instead of the person she imagined she would find, she discovers something altogether unexpected and learns what the ‘pink sky’ is all about.
