Storyline

"To be alive. To be alive. An intolerably immense undertaking..." Risa, Yumi, Shogo, Hiromi, Aïmi, Kosuke... they are Japanese people who are doubtfully trying to build their own life. Facing conventional life and violence of modern society, they find strength and understanding in Osamu Dazai's ambiguous writings. They live along with the great Japanese writer who committed suicide 60 years ago. Coming close to their questions and struggles, the two French filmmakers drive us through nowadays Japan.
