From indie film mavericks David & Nathan Zellner (KID-THING, GOLIATH) comes the “hypnotically original” (Entertainment Weekly) and “quietly magnificent” (The Guardian) Sundance sensation inspired by a shocking ‘true’ story: Academy Award® nominee Rinko Kikuchi (BABEL, PACIFIC RIM is “stunning” (Indiewire) as Kumiko, a sad and lonely Tokyo office assistant who finds a battered VHS tape of a popular film she’s mistaken for a documentary, becomes convinced that the movie’s buried suitcase of cash is real. But when Kumiko heads to frozen North Dakota to locate her fortune, she’ll discover that the line between reality and obsession may be the most elusive treasure of all. “Part road movie, part treasure hunt, it’s an emotionally charged gem,” says WeGotThisCovered.com. “This is a film that dares to dream, and dares you to dream with it!”
