Yonaguni is an island on the far western end of Japan, bordering Taiwan, the director’s land of birth. One day, the people of Yonaguni decided they wanted independence and to establish diplomatic relations with Taiwan. These two islands share similar backgrounds; one being political prey to Japan and the other to China. Both are in the peripheral vision of the world. Existence, to them, is a heavy burden. The director went there by boat as a tourist, but rediscovered himself in this strange land. He realized that whether it’s people, land or life, you only exist after you have been forgotten by the world.
