[ Story ]

Two HIV-positive families from a village in Northern Thailand look ahead to their future, with feet planted in the ground. Anna, who contracted HIV through her ex-husband, lives a peaceful life with her new husband while peddling fish and farming to make ends meet. Boy, a nine-year-old who lives in a neighboring town, goes back to school after a long period of absentia due to his illness, yet is soon hospitalized with AIDS and gradually wastes away. The pathos of life seeps through the lush green landscapes and the mellow passing of time. Following these families during her three-year residency in Thailand, the Japanese director captures their hope for life and embracing of death.
