我與妻子的1778個故事 1,778 Stories of Me and My Wife
“Boku to Tsuma no 1778 no Monogatari” (“1,778 stories of my wife and I”) is a Romantic Japanese film directed by Mamoru Hoshi. The film is based on the true story of science fiction writer Taku Mayumura whose wife died of colon cancer in 2002.
After a doctor told him laughter can help the immune system, Mayumura began writing one story of at least 3 pages every day for his cancer-stricken wife. Although the initial prognosis was that she would only survive one year, she went on to live 5 good years with the help of the 1,778 total stories written by her husband for her over that time.
