It had been a long time since Kotaro and Yoko had met but an invite to their local alumni association brought them together again. With the meeting finished, they journey through the back-roads and fields but their path is blocked by a tennis umpire’s chair. That’s when a man named Igarashi comes running into their lives. He is a former acquaintance of Kotaro’s and asks for their help carrying it. As the three work together, Yoko looks at the city she used to live in, looks at Kotaro who she used to date and thinks back on the past…

A road-trip turns takes a surreal detour into a melancholy walk down memory lane with none of the obvious signals or words to indicate feelings between people as the film expects audiences to work at interpreting just what is going on from events that end with an air of hopelessness in the face of change.
