RIP - Love & Other Cults


Eiji Uchida


Born in a small town in Japan, a young girl named Ai is sent to a cult commune by her religious maniac mother and lives there for seven long years. After the cult is exposed by the police, Ai starts a new stage of life, going to a normal school for the first time, but can’t fit in. Ai drops out from school & society, spending her life living with a delinquent family full of gangsters & call girls. In a strange twist of fate she finds herself back in a new and normal life, living with a middle-class family, but her troubled life continues to follow her into more deep and seedy paths. The only person who understands Ai and her troubles is another cast off from society, Ryota, who is in love with her. Ryota lives in a shady world of delinquents, though wants to escape and live a normal life. The two teens’ purity gets swallowed up by the urban jungle in a big regional city. A black comedy depicting lives of modern youth and their struggles in a place where there is no way out.
