Yusuke vanished three years ago without a trace. Now he's back and asking his wife Mizuki to take a trip with him. The journey takes them both down an unexpected route. Master director and this year's NIPPON HONOR AWARD-recipient Kiyoshi KUROSAWA's drama is a gutwrenching meditation on loss, grief, and redemption.
Kiyoshi KUROSAWA, born in Kobe in 1955, started his career as an assistant director for Shinji SOMAI, among others. His international breakthrough came with CURE (1997). He received the Prix Un Certain Regard in Cannes twice: for TOKYO SONATA in 2008 and for JOURNEY TO THE SHORE in 2015. He has been teaching at the Tokyo University of the Arts since 2005.
