This film depicts a man and woman who cannot draw their vision with unarticulated anxiety of future.


Sara and Ryo, a young, unmarried couple in their late twenties, leave Tokyo to spend a few days of their paid holidays in Atami, a tourist town of faded splendor. Although they appear to love each other, Sara seems put off by the prospect of living together. Ryo tried to bridge the gap during trip but they miss with each other.


*In Japanese with English subtitles
