[ Story ]

Two young monks, Chiken and Ryûgyô, return to their temples - one to Yamanashi and the other to Fukushima - after completing their training apprenticeship at the dojo of the Sôtô Buddhist school. Ten years later, facing the post-Fukushima socio-economic crisis, both monks, under different guises, have taken on more of a community role. Chiken volunteers on a suicide prevention hotline through his temple in Yamanashi and has learnt through his religion that the synchronicity of food and nature can have a positive impact on his family's health. Ryûgyô's family and temple were devastated by the tsunami, and he himself is still haunted by this tragedy. He comforts victims living in temporary shelters and helps clean up the debris as a construction worker.
