At her husband's funeral, Rie finds out that he was not who he claimed to be. She hires a lawyer to discover the true identity of the man she loved.
"This film with a complex plot addresses the issue from different angles. As the identity of the man known as 'X', named Daisuke Taniguchi, is revealed, it becomes more and more difficult to know which part of him is "true". The film is not just a thriller in which an answer to the question "Who is X?" is given at the end. Rather, it is a maze with no exit. The title "A Man" deliberately vague in order to show that X could be anybody. I would like the audience to witness the light that X may have found at the end of his long, difficult life's journey, because I really believe that this will remind us of how precious life is... The question "Who am I?" has troubled me for a long time. In today's world where intolerance and isolation are rife, I think this question is not just a personal issue." Ishikawa Kei
