The Kenworthy would like to invite you to join us for the International Film Series. The International Film Series fulfills part of our goals and strategies by encouraging film and other performing arts that would not otherwise be available in the area; providing and promoting quality events for all patrons; and by prohibiting discrimination, in the entertainment and in the audience, on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or age.
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 behavior. 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.
