Two young Japanese outsiders decide to end their life with a group of people committing suicide. Their journey gives both of them an idea of what life would have to offer and let's them reconsider their decision. This movie gives a radical and for a western audience disturbing answer to a fundamental question many people have to face: Is there a place for me? Although it is a taboo to even pose the question in many societies. Nevertheless it is relevant for quite a lot of people. Most of the western audience will feel offended and hence maybe miss a pretty successful attempt of a realisation of that sensitive matter. But still I am not sure whether it is right to ask such a question without giving a reason first why it should be asked: It could too easily be the case, that these two minors are just depressive and were never really offered a chance to escape their depressing situation. So it is up to you to decide.
