Japan / 2018 / Japanese / 76 minutes / DCP

A Jesus Christ like no one has seen before – in miniature but hyperactive form, He keeps company with a lonely boy who has to adjust to the new environment and a new Christian school after his family moves from Tokyo to the snowy countryside. Just as the boy starts to have faith in the power of the Lord, tragedy strikes, leaving him to question tiny Jesus’ role, while pondering life, religion and death. Winner of the New Director award, San Sebastian.
