Ep. 5: Atsuko Hirayanagi and "Oh Lucy!" The Pacific Heart

Ravi Chandra sits down with director Atsuko Hirayanagi to discuss her fantastic feature film debut, "Oh Lucy!"

"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.' When her English-instructor John suddenly disappears from class, Setsuko travels halfway around the world in search of him to the outskirts of Southern California."
