映画『WOOD JOB!(ウッジョブ)~神去なあなあ日常~』予告編 from シネマトゥデイ on YouTube.

Based on the best-selling novel by Miura Shion.

Director Yaguchi Shinobu (whose hit films include
Waterboys, Swing Girls, & Survival Family) delivers a comedy full of laughter and emotional drama!

Having just graduated from high school with no idea of what to do next, 18-year-old Yuki finds himself suddenly cutting timber very far from his native home in a remote mountain village where cell phones don't work, no convenience stores exist, and there aren't any young people.

The work is extremely laborious and dangerous. Will Yuki be able to pass his forestry training program?
