A Japanese coupleĀ  discover that the baby they have been raising as their son, now 6 years old, was switched at birth with a child from a poorer family. This is a heartfelt drama in which bloodlines and nurthuring come head to head. Sensitively performed and directed, LIKE FATHER LIKE SON is a series of acutely observed insights into its themes and its social setting, as well as a close study of human nature faced with some complex issues. The film provides a close-up view of 2 families struggling with this conflict – a no-win situation that’s indelibly inscribed.
