The latest mystical drama from director Naomi Kawase is set in the magical Yoshino Mountains of Nara in Japan. French writer Jeanne (a luminous Juliette Binoche) has arrived and is awaiting “vision”, a herb that appears once in a millennium. It is reputed to vanquish weakness and agony in anyone who consumes it. She meets Tomo (Masatoshi Nagase) and Aki (Mari Natsuki), who claims to be the guardian of the forest in which the herb grows. As she waits for nature to flourish, Jeanne grows closer to Tomo and begins a journey to confront the grief and anxieties in her past.
