Synopsis

The peaceful, cyclical existence of a ferryman in a remote village high up the mountains is disturbed by the news that a bridge will be built, rendering his services expendable. Complicating the situation further, he saves a girl from drowning; she is covered in bruises and cuts, and has lost her memory.

This slow-burner wows the audience with stunning vistas of rural Japan. The intense and captivating visuals paint the passage of time and tell a tale of change.
