Abigail Harm is a 2012 drama film starring Amanda Plummer, Tetsuo Kuramochi, and Will Patton. The movie is directed by Lee Isaac Chung. The story revolves around Abigail (Amanda Plummer), a woman who lives alone in her apartment and takes care of her pet turtle. Abigail is a lonely and isolated person who spends most of her time reading and watching movies.

One day, Abigail receives a mysterious phone call from a man named M (Tetsuo Kuramochi) who asks her to take care of his mother for a week. Abigail is hesitant at first, but agrees to meet M and his mother.

M's mother turns out to be a charming and elderly Japanese woman named Kayoko (Chieko Matsubara). Abigail starts taking care of Kayoko and they develop a strong bond. Kayoko teaches Abigail how to cook Japanese food and they spend their time talking and watching TV together.

However, Abigail soon finds out that Kayoko is not M's real mother and that M has been using Abigail to hide Kayoko from the authorities. M is an undocumented immigrant and he fears that he and his mother will be deported if they are caught.

Abigail is torn between helping M and his mother and doing the right thing. She knows that harboring illegal immigrants is a crime, but she cannot bear the thought of Kayoko being forced to leave the country.

As the week progresses, Abigail and Kayoko's relationship grows stronger and Abigail realizes that she has finally found someone who understands her.

The movie also explores the themes of loneliness, isolation, and the search for human connection. Abigail is unable to connect with anyone in her life until she meets Kayoko. Meanwhile, M and his mother are also searching for a sense of belonging in a foreign country where they are constantly under threat of deportation.

The performances in the movie are top-notch, especially Amanda Plummer's portrayal of Abigail. Plummer captures Abigail's loneliness and vulnerability perfectly, and her chemistry with Chieko Matsubara (who plays Kayoko) is heartwarming.

Tetsuo Kuramochi also delivers a powerful performance as M, a man who will do anything to protect his mother. Will Patton plays a small but crucial role as Abigail's neighbor who provides some comic relief.

The movie's cinematography is stunning, with beautiful shots of New York City and Tokyo. The contrast between the two cities and the different cultures is also highlighted in the film.

Overall, Abigail Harm is a touching and thought-provoking movie that explores the themes of human connection, loneliness, and the struggle of immigrants in a foreign land. It is a must-watch for anyone looking for a poignant and powerful drama.

Abigail Harm is a 2013 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 20 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4 and a MetaScore of 59.
