Based on the short story by Haruki Murakami, Drive My Car is the story of love, loss, longing and driving.

Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima) is a stage actor and director who is happily married to Oto (Reika Kirishima), a screenwriter. There are secrets and deceptions between them, but even so they carry on as a couple.

When Oto suddenly dies, she leaves behind many unresolved questions and answers between them.

Two years later, Kafuku, still grieving the loss of his wife, receives an offer to direct a play at a theatre festival in Hiroshima and drives there from Tokyo with his assigned driver, Misaki (Toko Miura). 

Although Kafuka is not totally sure of Misaki at first, Kafuku confronts the mystery of his wife that quietly haunts him through talking with Misaki on the road.

Together, Kafuku and Misaki navigate towards the future, as the film twists and turns from Southern Japan to Northern Japan in a beloved Saab 900 – with some dialogue on cassette tapes and some Samuel Beckett and Chekhov performances along the way.
