Discovering the essence of the companion, family, friends and others is the challenge posed by the story.
The movie takes you to geographical places you might never been before, as well as into your inside and your persona.
Great to reflect while feeling lost in both places and enjoying a work of art.
You will go as far away as Tokyo and as deep inside as your more basic understanding of human beings.
The unit of the story is a family at a moment of crises.
Some may see this story as a sequence of complains. But it can also be seen as stepping stones in the road to happiness.
It stresses the relevance of how taking good care of ourselves is the beginning of taking others feelings into consideration.
Some might have the feeling of not having a complete set of tools to approximate of understanding others essence, and feel compelled to change and develop them.
In syntheses the play depicts the sharp contrast in the two faces of the coin of life the one that gets engulfed by routine and the one that consciously chose to live on the other side seeking truth in the road of simplicity.
