The Kind-Hearted Cat

Single mother and nursery school teacher Miyuki meets Sri Lankan Kumara while doing volunteer work in northeastern Japan after the 2011 disaster. One year later, the two reunite as if by fate and are slowly drawn to each other. Along with Miyuki's daughter Maya, they begin living together as a family. But, right after they submit their marriage forms and become officially married, Kumara is detained in an immigration facility for overstaying his visa and is given a deportation order to return to Sri Lanka. The marriage is suspected to be fake when Kumara is questioned, and the family is treated with disrespect. In order to help Kumara, they have no choice but to start a court case to win special permission for residency. The three of them just want to live together as a family. With that simple wish in their hearts, they take on a court battle with Japan itself.
