Directed by Junji Sakamoto, Bokunchi (My House) offers insight on living in a small, somewhat eccentric village from the perspective of a little boy. Based on a comic series by Rieko Saibara, seven-year-old Nita and his older brother Ita live within a fishing community, where they are cared for by their mother, Kanoko. Abandoned by his father at an early age, Nita spends most of his time wandering around the town, regularly checking up on various local haunts and the people who reside in them. When his mother's older sister arrives on the island, however, Nita's predictable existence turns upside down. Bokunchi features Arisa Mizuki, Yuma Yamamoto, Yuki Tanaka, Claude Maki, and Ran Otori.
