Having flunked his university entrance exams, Hirano sees a recruitment ad for a logging company and decides on a whim to apply. This act launches him into a year-long traineeship in rural Japan, where he learns more than just the finer arts of forestry. Hirano’s interactions with the villagers and their old style traditions and beliefs (not least, their fertility rituals) lead him on a journey of self-actualization in a place where so many things are awkwardly unfamiliar. With a good sprinkling of comedy and drama, Wood Job! is a coming-of-age story that focuses on the myriad emotions teenagers experience during periods of change and personal growth—ultimately leading to empowerment.
