A SCIFI JAPAN EXCLUSIVE
Shochiku Co., Ltd. presents POLICEMAN AND ME (PとJK, P to JK), a live-action adaptation of the best-selling comic series P and JK (Police and Jyoshi Kousei) which has sold over 2.1 million copies. The film, described as “a heartwarming and pure ‘age-gap’ love story between a Policeman and a High School girl, was directed by Ryuichi Hiroki (KABUKICHO LOVE HOTEL, WOLF GIRL & BLACK PRINCE) and stars Kazuya Kamenashi (GOKUSEN THE MOVIE, HUMANOID MONSTER BEM, JOKER GAME) and Tao Tsuchiya (ORANGE, MAREE, ULTRAMAN ZERO: THE REVENGE OF BELIAL, RUROUNI KENSHIN series, YELL FOR THE BLUE SKY).
A high school freshman named Kako (Tao Tsuchiya) meets a policeman named Kota (Kazuya Kamenashi) at a party. They are attracted to each other but when Kota finds out Kako’s true age, his attitude turns cold as dating a high school girl is definitely off-limits as a policeman.
However he gradually takes her feelings seriously and decides that the only way that will allow them to be together is a marriage proposal. They get married under the condition that they keep the marriage a secret until Kako graduates from high school, but there are many obstacles along the way…
