The critically acclaimed documentary “Abduction: The Megumi Yokota Story,” about the girl kidnapped by North Korean agents, will hit Japanese screens in November, a distributor said Tuesday.

The movie will debut at Cinema GAGA! in Shibuya Ward, Tokyo, on Nov. 25 and subsequently be shown in theaters nationwide, GAGA Communications Inc. said.

“The producers said they really want to play the movie in Japan, and we have decided to cooperate because it has social significance,” a GAGA Communications official said.

The movie, which details the abduction of Megumi Yokota from Niigata in 1977 at age 13, was directed by Chris Sheridan and Patty Kim.
