This film reflects an album of a trip in the 70s of the last century, from Japan to the world, and the dialogue of father and daughter about the memories from the images, about the words, about the desire to bring them to the present. Jiro, the father, is a Japanese man who serenely inhabits his garden in Portugal, where he decided to stay after a trip he made at the age of thirty. Aya, her daughter and the director of this film, revive this journey.
The film has won several accolades, including the Bright Future Award at the IFFR International Film Festival Rotterdam (The Netherlands); the Teenage Award at Porto / Post / Doc Film & Media Festival (Portugal); and the Peter Liechti Award at the Bildrausch Basel International Film Festival (Switzerland). In addition, it has been the opening film at Mostra A Gulbenkian eo Cinema Português (Portugal) and has participated in the DocLisboa International Film Festival (Portugal), in the BAFICI ─ Festival Internacional de Cinema Independiente de Buenos Aires, (Argentina), in the EDOC Festival ─ Encuentros del otro Cine (Ecuador) and at Image Forum festival 2019, Tokyo and Nagoya (Japan).
