15' I short docufiction | 2023 I festivals circuit

In the country with most Japanese descendants outside Japan, Haruko, 94, finds herself on the brink of life. While her Japanese-Brazilian daughter Sumiko takes care of her, they inhabit a house surrounded by memories, dreams and nature. Confronted by the approach of death, they grapple with ghosts from the past and wander through the narrow path between the earthly and the transcendental.

Written and Directed by: André Hayato Saito
