Synopsis

From the producer of Philomena and The Duchess, Cottontail is a universal portrait of love, acceptance and family loss starring Ken Watanabe, Dai Watanabe and Jessie Buckley.

Told with warmth and gentle humour, the story follows the heart-breaking journey of Kenzaburo (Ken Watanabe) who, after his wife Akiko passes away in Japan, embarks with his estranged son Toshi (Dai Watanabe) to the Lake District in England - the land of Beatrix Potter, whose charming tales of Peter Rabbit captivated Akiko as a child. She had always hoped to travel there one day with Kenzaburo, and now he must fulfil her last wish and scatter her ashes amongst the heavenly natural beauty of the lakes. This is a moving and very human story of memory, family secrets, and forgiveness. How do we help our loved ones as they face the end?
