Your Eyes Tell

From Japanese director Takahiro Miki comes Your Eyes Tell, a remake of the wildly successful Korean film Always.

Akari (Yuriko Yoshitaka) loses her sight and meets Rui (Ryûsei Yokohama) on the same day. Rui has just got out of prison after working with the Yakuza and is hoping to make a clean slate for himself. Akari, meanwhile, has to make a new slate out of her blindness, a task she tackles with glee and optimism even despite her lack of a support system. The pair quickly bond over their disconnect with the world, a bond that is threatened when Rui’s past catches up to him.

Featuring an original theme song composed by k-pop sensation BTS, Your Eyes Tell is a fantastical picture of romance under incredible circumstances.
