Painting of My Childhood is a short drama film shining a light on Japan’s sole parental custody laws, which cause children to lose contact with one parent and extended family.

Join Aiko as she travels from Japan to England to reunite with her long-lost English father, Lee, who was separated for three decades.

The eagerly anticipated reunion takes an unexpected turn when Aiko discovers that Lee is grappling with late-stage dementia.

Aiko not only confronts the challenges of her father’s fading memory but also navigates the intricate web of cultural and familial barriers with her newly reconnected stepbrother, James.
