As is well known, nothing human is alien to Werner Herzog. His new feature film is about a special service that is probably only possible in Japan: companies offer actors that can be hired to replace friends, family members or even work colleagues. Yuichi Ishii is the manager of such a company and works as a human replacement himself. A mother asks him to impersonate her absent husband – she hides the true identity of her new “father” from her teenage daughter.
