An adaptation of Hirata Oriza’s play by “Bayside Shakedown” series director Motohiro Katsuyuki. The members of idol group Momoiro Clover Z star as high school students who grow through their involvement in a lowly drama club. Among their co-stars is Kuroki Haru, who won a Silver Bear for Best Actress at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2014 for her performance in The Little House.

Fujigaoka High School’s drama club has never made it past the preliminaries in regional competitions. Under the tutelage of Ms. Yoshioka (Kuroki), known as “the queen of school theater,” the determined Saori (Momota Kanako) and her fellow clubmates band together in the hope of making the national championship.
