About the film:

Love is a business at Family Romance, a company that rents human stand-ins for any occasion. Family, friends, followers. All available for hire. Founder Yuichi Ishii helps make his clients’ dreams come true. But when the mother of 12-year-old Mahiro hires Ishii to impersonate her missing father, the line between acting and reality threatens to blur.

Oscar-nominated auteur Werner Herzog brings to the screen a unique angle to recurring themes around people chasing impossible dreams.
