The First Breath of Tengan Rei


  • College of Lake County 19351 West Washington Street Grayslake, IL, 60030 United States

Japanese star Erika Oda (Kore-eda's Cannes smash After Life) stars as Tengan Rei, a young Okinawan woman who kidnaps Paris, the teenage son of a U.S. Marine convicted of raping her when she was a girl. Unlocking their shared histories, Rei and Paris are drawn together, even as the boy's father closes in on them. Set against the stunning tropical beauty of Okinawa and the rusted grit of industrial Chicago, The First Breath of Tengan Rei takes viewers on an unforgettable emotional journey.
