Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival – Kumiko’s (Rinko Kikuchi) only true joy comes from an old VHS tape of the 1996 Coen Brothers’ film, FARGO, and she becomes obsessed that the story will lead her to fortune. With her hand-stiched, homemade treasure map, Kumiko travels from Tokyo, across the Pacific, and into the cold winter of the Americas to find her salvation.
