Synopsis

Young filmmaker Fuka Natsuka lives in Shiga with her divorced mother. Fuka’s on the verge of leaving the nest to make her own way in life. She visits her older sister, who mentions that their father has recently purchased a new house. Intrigued, Fuka pays him a visit. He nonchalantly admits he hasn’t met his son and older daughter in years. There’s no ill will among the scattered Nakatsukas, but a general drifting apart. The youngest child of a family will often attempt to bring everyone together, as Fuka does while documenting her interactions. Her sister reveals an unexpected pregnancy via LINE chat, while a job offer from Tokyo arrives by snail mail. Fuka makes the move to a tiny apartment in the big city, swearing ″I’ll never go back…″
