SYNOPSIS

Chun and Dong are brothers with very different personalities. After entering into their middle age, although both living in Beijing, they have long been estranged from each other. One day, the younger brother Dong proposes to travel to Yanagawa, Japan with Chun, in order to seek for the woman that they both loved in their youth.

DIRECTING INTENTION

Love is an enigma; for the spectators and even more so for the smitten ones. To hold an enigma is to hold the desire to unravel it. But what happens? Time and space will give birth to a bigger mystery. Nevertheless, we persist passionately on this wander, occasioned by song and dance.
