Storyline

Shot as a personal project and with a DIY ethic, the film follows a day in the life of a sister who searching for her brother in the hustle and bustle of Tokyo only to find the man homeless and living under a makeshift shelter. The promise and expectations of 'greatness' of a man who is now living on the streets are secondary to the intra-family relationship of a brother and sister and all the intimacy that only history together can generate.
