Synopsis

A young woman, Ako, wanders around a sparsely populated housing estate in the rural city of Mito, where she spends her time speaking to objects and plants. She slips in and out of the conscious world. To those who encounter her, Ako appears to have psychiatric issues; to her, everybody simply misunderstands her. The film is situated in a housing estate that symbolises the prosperity of Japan’s recent past, while its dilapidation represents the nation’s failed present.
