Japan’s Takeshi Kogahara will showcase Nagisa about love between siblings separated by fate.

Finally, India's Parth Saurabh will present On Either Sides of the Pond, which follows a couple who, for pandemic economic reasons, return to their hometown, where their relationship begins to deteriorate.
