When her five-year-old son passed the rigorous entrance exams to one of Japan’s top private elementary schools, Makihara, a single mother, thought they were on their way. Taro would wear the historic dark blue uniform and learn alongside other little Einsteins while she basked in the glory of his high achievements with the other perfect moms. Together they would climb the rungs into the country’s successful elite. But it didn’t turn out that way. Taro had other things in mind.
