Kumiko The Treasure Hunter

Summary: Kumiko, played by Academy Award-nominee Rinko Kikuchi (Babel), lives a shy and solitary life in a cramped Tokyo apartment shared only by her beloved pet rabbit Bunzo. Increasingly isolated, constantly browbeaten by her mother who complains that she isn’t married yet, and stuck in a dead-end job with a demeaning boss, Kumiko devotes all her spare time to compulsive viewings of Joel and Ethan Coen’s classic Fargo. It’s not so much the film that fascinates her, more the suitcase of cash Steve Buscemi’s hapless kidnapper buries beneath the snow in the titular city’s outskirts.

Rewinding and fast-forwarding her weathered VHS tape to the point of its destruction, Kumiko meticulously hand-sews a map that pinpoints where she believes the money remains buried, and commences a life-changing odyssey towards the wintry American Midwest to claim it.
