Storyline

A raw ode to the miracle of fertility and its transience. The filmmaker followed the trail of the unconventional Dutch Japanese pianist Tomoko Mukaiyama who invited women (and men) to reflect upon this primal theme by means of an art project in Japan. They talk, sometimes for the first time, about children that were or were not born, about sexuality and choices they made. Their stories are interwoven with the music of Bach, sensually interpreted by the pianist, and lead to a Buddhist ritual for unborn children. The pianist and the filmmaker kept silent for a long time about their own deeper motivations. In the course of the creative process and the film, it becomes clear what drives them both, each from her own fate. Written by Anonymous
