On the Japanese island of Amami, despite lacking parental guidance, 16-year-old Kaito and his girlfriend Kyoko try to find their place in the world. While Kaito suffers from the absence of his father, who moved to Tokyo after his birth, Kyoko must come to grips with her mother’s terminal illness.

MUBI's take

Retracing her ancestry back to Japan’s southern island of Amami Ōshima, Naomi Kawase touchingly set this meditation of youth in her family’s originating community. Calling it her own masterpiece, Kawase envelops one in a rare distillation of nature and existence painted upon a canvas of pure calm.
