A story of love of two teenagers: Narumi is being abused by her mother, and Gin accidentally knows his father is gay. When they became attracted to each another, they decide to run away from everything.

  • Review

    Narumi is a girl abused by her mom. Gin is a boy who accidentally finds out that his father is gay. They are attracted to each other, but people around them don’t respect their feelings. Their parents ruin their lives. Narumi’s stepfather even sexually abuses her. Gin doesn’t know how to face his father, who is in despair because he’s not honest with himself. They run away from home, but there’s nowhere to go.
    Innocent 15 deals with the common topic of ‘unprotected childhood,´ but its ways of expression touch people’s hearts. The way the protagonists look and move are impressive: It’s not learned; it’s as if they’re really in the situation. The film shows the absolute solitude of the kids and their desperate longing for a friend. [KIM Youngjin]
