Naomi Kawase

Shigeki is comfortable and happy in his small retirement home. The staff is gentle and caring, but Machiko, secretly haunted by the loss of her child, pays special attention to Shigeki. One day, after celebrating Shigeki’s birthday, Machiko and Shigeki take a drive in the countryside. Making their way along the scenic back roads the car is forced into a ditch by a landslide. Shigeki determinedly heads off into the forest, and Machiko has no choice but to follow. Two exhausting days of discovery end at Shigeki’s wife’s tomb.
