[ Story ]

Actor Odagiri Joe makes his feature film directorial debut from an original script he wrote which asks what is a compassionate way of life. Joining the staff are internationally recognized cinematographer Christopher Doyle and costume designer Wada Emi.
In a village nestled in a valley where bridge construction has been moving forward due to modernization, Toichi (Emoto Akira) is a boatman who lives in a modest cabin along the riverside. He goes about his days silently paddling a ferryboat across the river. One day an orphan girl (Kawashima Ririka) shows up and changes the way of life Toichi had been living up to then.
