Japan's own queer girls’ flick, “Topless” is now available on DVD! The film, based on a script written by out lesbian writer Purin Watanabe, delivers a strikingly real and roundly humorous gay girls’ perspective on life for Japanese lesbians as it warmly depicts the human drama of love.

*English subtitles for the film were supervised by Tokyo Wrestling.

The ever-lively and upbeat Natsuko tries to mend a broken heart after her break-up with Tomomi. But when Tomomi announces her plans to marry - a man - Natsuko becomes inconsolable. While all this is taking place, Natsuko's straight male roommate is grappling with his own feelings for her, and a young high school girl comes to Tokyo searching for the mother that long ago left her for a female lover. Each character - queer, straight, male, female, young, old, and in-between - struggles to make peace with him/herself as all their lives overlap. This story captures the power of young love, and the web of the city.
