Synopsis

Hitoshi telah kembali ke kampung halamannya di Agunishima untuk memperkenalkan istrinya, Yuko, kepada keluarganya. Akan tetapi, Yuko marah saat ia diberi tahu alasan dari perjalanan pulang tersebut. Tujuan yang sesungguhnya adalah untuk mengikuti upacara Senkotsu—tradisi turun-temurun Agunishima berupa pembersihan tulang orang yang sudah mati. Kisah ini adalah komedi yang hangat tentang keluarga yang terpecah dan menemukan kembali diri mereka yang sejati melalui upacara pembersihan tulang. Meski mengangkat topik serius seperti tradisi Senkotsu yang tetap lestari di Agunishima, film ini tetap menjadi satu karya inspiratif dari sutradaranya, Gori, yang menunjukkan upaya terbaiknya dalam menciptakan komedi yang membawa tawa dan tangis.

Hitoshi has returned to his hometown of Agunishima to introduce his wife, Yuko, to the family. But, Yuko is furious when she is told the reason for the trip home. The true purpose was for the Senkotsu ceremony—Agunishima’s continuing custom of cleansing the bones of the dead. This is a heartwarming comedy of a disconnected family discovering their true selves through the ceremony of bone cleansing. Though dealing with the serious subject of Agunishima’s preserved Senkotsu custom, the film is still an inspiring piece by its director Gori, who shows his best in creating a comedy that brings laughters and tears.
