Director: Ryûsuke Hamaguchi
Starring: Kotone Furukawa, Katsuki Mori, Shouma Kai, Fusako Urabe

From Ryûsuke Hamaguchi, the acclaimed writer-director of multiple Oscar nominated Drive My Car, comes the delightful and beguiling Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy.

An unexpected love triangle, a failed seduction trap and an encounter that results from a misunderstanding – over three short stories of women in love, Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy astutely explores the complexities of relationships and the human condition.

Meiko is startled when she realises the man her best friend has started to date is her ex; Sasaki plots to trick his college professor out of revenge, using his class friend-with-benefits Nao; while Natsuko encounters a woman who seems to be someone from her past, leading the two to confess feelings they have long harboured in their hearts.
