Rent a Family Inc.

Rent a Family Inc I truly enjoyed. Follow a Japanese man who has a side business where he rents himself (and others he hires) to stand in for real people. Need a father or a best man or a boss? He’ll be it. He gets his clients via his self-created website (good SEO!), but his family has no idea about the business.

The interesting thing is (aside from the very unique business!), while he’s out ‘helping’ other family situations, he’s distant with his own family.

I highly recommend Rent a Family Inc — 4/5 at Hot Docs. Trailer below:
