Investigative filmmaker Yuko is putting together a piece about the bereaved families connected with a bullied schoolgirl's suicide. Determined to shed light on the truth, Yuko's uncompromising nature brings her into conflict with the conservative-minded management at her television network but succeeds in getting her interview subjects to place their trust in her. Then Yuko discovers that her father, Masashi, who runs a test prep school, has made a grave error of judgment. The further she becomes involved in his mistake, the more she finds herself telling lie after lie. As unexpected developments occur, Yuko's struggles with her conscience and her compromised perception of the truth force her to make life-altering decisions. The sophomore feature from Yujiro Harumoto, A BALANCE had its world premiere at the Pingyao International Film Festival where it won both the Roberto Rossellini Jury Award and the People's Choice Award before also capturing the New Currents Award at the Busan International Film Festival.
