Shoplifters -Kitakyushu, Japan

****Tickets in the Elevent system display the first day the film is available for viewing, which is April 19th. However, all TSCIFF tickets allow the film to be viewed at your leisure from the date of purchase until the end of the Festival, Midnight on the 25th of April.****A Japanese couple stuck with part-time jobs and hence inadequate incomes avail themselves of the fruits of shoplifting to make ends meet. They are not alone in this behaviour. The younger and the older of the household are in on the act. The unusual routine is about to change from care-free and matter-of-fact to something more dramatic, however, as the couple open their doors to a beleaguered young girl. The reasons for the family's habit and their motivations come under the microscope.
