Gaga Communications has acquired world sales rights for high school drama Halfway, produced by famed director-producer Shunji Iwai (All About Lily Chou-Chou).

Eriko Kitagawa makes her directing debut on the film and also wrote the screenplay. The story follows the trials and tribulations of a high school couple as their graduation approaches. Kie Kitano and Masaki Okada star.

Kitagawa previously gained recognition as the writer of popular TV dramas such as Beautiful Life and Long Vacation.

Gaga will begin selling the film at the upcoming Asian Film Market in Pusan (Oct 3-6). Halfway is slated for domestic release in February 2009.
