Setsuko is a single, emotionally unfulfilled woman, seemingly stuck with a drab, meaningless life in Tokyo. At least until she's convinced by her niece, Mika to enroll in an unorthodox English class that requires her to wear a blonde wig and take on an American alter ego named "Lucy." This new identity awakens something dormant in Setsuko, and she quickly develops romantic feelings for her American instructor, John (Josh Hartnett). When John suddenly disappears from class and Setsuko learns that he and her niece were secretly dating, Setsuko enlists the help of her sister, Ayako and the pair fly halfway across the world to the outskirts of Southern California in search of the runaway couple. In a brave new world of tattoo parlors and seedy motels, family ties and past lives are tested as Setsuko struggles to preserve the dream and promise of "Lucy."

"Japanese filmmaker Atsuko Hirayanagi explores the transformative power of human connection in OH LUCY!, a film which seems to play like a standard culture clash comedy but reveals itself to run significantly deeper."
Nikki Baughan - SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

"Expanded from her award-winning short of the same title, OH LUCY! betrays some rough edges in the transition, but Hirayanagi's idiosyncratic touch marks her as a talent worth tracking."
Andrew Barker - VARIETY

"The tone see-saws wildly. What prevents it collapsing are the warm, heartfelt performances, together with Hirayanagi's obvious affection for her chief protagonist."
Xan Brooks - GUARDIAN
