Yura is a young boy whose family leaves Tokyo to live with his grandmother in the snowy countryside. Not only must he fit in at a new school, but it’s a Christian one. At first, he is puzzled when he and his classmates are called to “worship,” but he gradually adjusts to his new environment. One day, in the middle of a prayer, he sees a very small Jesus appear before him. Each wish Yura makes to Jesus comes true, and he starts to have faith in the power of the Lord. Runtime: 76 minutes.
A special English-subtitled screening of JESUS, directed by Hiroshi Okuyama, will be shown at Kawakita Film Museum with a bonus after-show event with Director Okuyama taking place on March 13th following the 14:00 screening.（In Japanese language only)
