Mr. Kotomoto Is Definitely Not White is a dark satire that follows three tea shop employees as the business expands to selling a special blend that gives the drinker dreams. When their older manager sends a blatantly racist email, the workers have to navigate their changing relationships to the company, and to each other. For each character, survival becomes a question of compromising integrity in the large and often unchanging game of capitalism.
