What's the Story of Uncle From Another World?
Netflix has given us a plot summary for the film “Uncle from Another World”:
“Autumn 2017… After being placed in a coma after being struck by a truck when he was 17 years old, Takafumi's uncle unexpectedly comes to after being in a coma for the last 17 years. During Takafumi's visit to his uncle in the hospital, he witnesses the elderly man babbling incoherently and claiming that he has recently returned from a place called “Granbahamal.”
It is pretty clear that his uncle has completely lost his mind. When Takafumi's uncle claims to be in another dimension, Takafumi is at a loss for words, but his uncle uses some magic to support his claims.
After deciding to make a living off his uncle's skills and having no other relatives to turn on for assistance, Takafumi takes him in, and the two of them start living together in an apartment.
During the time that Takafumi spends with his uncle, he learns about his uncle's magical experiences and his infinite passion for SEGA video games. However, there are moments when hearing about his uncle's struggles with loneliness and cruelty makes Takafumi feel both happy and sad.
This fresh and fascinating otherworldly comedy takes place in a nook of an apartment complex, and it focuses on two guys of different generations working very hard to become video content makers.
