[ Story ]

Kuroyoshi Gen (Kurizuka Asahi) is an elderly artisan who makes clothes for the royal family and Shinto priests. He lives in an old neighborhood in Kyoto with his wife of 45 years, Chie (Fujimura Shiho), but Chie is suffering from a wasting disease and is losing her physical and mental agility. Gen meets a young student magician named Shunsuke (Kashu Toshiki) and asks him to come to his home and put on a magic show to cheer up his wife. Shunsuke becomes a regular visitor until Chie collapses and is taken to the hospital. Gen decides to shut down his business to nurse her. While he is clearing out the shop, he comes across the diary Chie kept when they first met and fell in love. Shunsuke leaves to study in the U.S. and Chie passes away peacefully.
This homage to the old studio films of Kyoto's golden age is lovingly crafted in real locations by cast and crew.
