This is expected to be a 30-minute documentary, which will explore the youth of Japan, and their barriers to marriage, along with the receptiveness to sexuality, with the approaching of hentai. What have made young Japanese lazy about getting married? Are there the pressures of work and life; or the perspective on the desire to freely pursue their careers and to escape from age-old traditions and values? Leaving this unsolved, Japan is getting older. Through books and mainstream press in Viet Nam, we learn that Japanese are very discreet about private life, and maintain the most traditional cultural values. Is there contradiction between those life styles? This documentary would use antithesis as the main storry-telling method for the film along with stories being told by our characters from different classes of Japan.
