Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Fujiro Mitsuishi's Ogya is about a pregnant teenager who is forced to confront her mother. Hana (Aya Okamoto) is a nineteen-year old expectant mother. She travels with her grandmother's ashes to her grandmother's house. Hana's mother (Kimiko Yo), who gave birth to Hana when she herself was a teenager, now resides in the home. They are on the outs with each other, but are forced to stay with each other when Hana's boyfriend fails to show. Hana's half-sister and stepfather round out the cast. Ogya was screened at the Hawaii Film Festival.
