Norwegian teen Vilde is fascinated by Japanese culture and animation and dreams about the vibrant Tokyo arts borough of Harajuku.
In Oslo she hangs out with like-minded friends at Central Station thinking of creative ways to energise their mundane days. It’s also Christmas, and Vilde’s mum is in an unusually good mood – but a short while later, tragedy strikes.
Vilde is suddenly forced into the position of having to contact her biological father and during the space of a few short hours, her life will change forever.
Harajuku is a captivating and layered film that captures a complex father-daughter relationship that explores the effects of estrangement on both parent and child.
