Oh, My Buddha!
Jun, a first-year student at an all-boys Buddhist high school takes his teenage-life easy. He is a big fan of Bob Dylan, writes his own songs and all he´s got in mind for the summer is “free sex”. Together with some friends he travels to the island of “free love” where his dreams come true. This humorous semiautobiographical comingofage story from Jun MIURA is Tomorowo TAGUCHI´s second work as a director.
