Synopsis:
Award winning director John Williams gives us a deep insight into Japanese society with this touching portrait of a rebel teenager growing up. City girl Naomi (Maho) is packed off to work at her aunt's hotel in the countryside after her mother runs off with another man. She hates the hard work in the isolated hotel so her aunt arranges for her to look after an aging relative, Mrs. Koide, who is suffering with Alzheimer's disease. At first Naomi hates this too, but gradually becomes intrigued by the old woman and the mysteries in her past. As Naomi's summer romance with a local boy turns sour she grows closer to Mrs.
Koide and they begin to share their secrets and their dreams, Naomi realising that the old woman was young once too. On her return to the city, Naomi discovers an old film from Mrs. Koide's past, and comes to an understanding of life and grace as she begins her new life as a young adult.
