In Kore-eda's latest film we have an intricate story touching on many of modern-day challenges from bullying to social media rumour-mongering.

A building, on the site of a sleazy hostess-bar burns to the ground and rumours spread that the local schoolteacher was a customer. One day a fight breaks out at school and a single mother demands answers from the teacher when her beloved son starts to act strangely. A saga ensues and it gradually develops into a big deal involving society and the media. Then, one morning, the children disappear.
