WASABI (2001)

Film details


Hubert, an overly-violent Paris cop, is suspended for accidentally hospitalising his boss' son. He receives a well-timed call from Japan explaining that his one true love Miko - who left him nearly two decades earlier - has died and left him her sole beneficiary. Hubert travels to Japan to discover that his 'inheritance' is an unknown daughter by Miko, a combative teenager named Yumi. Miko makes Hubert Yumi's legal guardian but this is where Hubert's problems begin: Yumi loathes cops in general and is convinced that Hubert raped her mother.
