MK2 confirmed the film as starring TAKANASHI Rin 高梨臨, Okuno Tadashi (奥野匡) and KASE Ryo 加瀬亮 in the tale of a female Japanese student who prostitutes herself to pay for her studies and finds unexpected kindness from an elderly client.
The $4.8 million picture was originally scheduled to shoot from April last year, but was delayed by the effects of the March earthquake and tsunami. It started its eight-week shoot in October. The new schedule would put it in contention for a slot at May's Cannes Film Festival.
