[ Story ]

One morning in October, my eyes came to rest upon a small article in the local section of the newspaper. Early the day before, the dead body of a man in his twenties or thirties had been found. As if in complete contradiction, right across the river from the crime scene a photo-event drew adoring fans of their "idol" stars. It's just one of many incidents in one of Tokyo's many parks. After recording these scenes, the camera looks high into the sky only to return to yet another park. This experimental documentary explores its subject through a cyclical structure.
