About the Film

Toichi rows his boat daily to ferry the villagers to and from a town on the other side of the river. Unlike the rest of the residents, he feels threatened by the new bridge being built upstream. One day, he takes in a mysterious young woman who has nowhere to go. This encounter promises to change his life.
