In the glaring light of a spring day, a father and his daughter roam the Kyoto Botanical Garden. After losing sight of each other, the liminal space of the garden becomes the scene of a series of fleeting encounters, which the director explores with a precise sensitivity to the seen and the unseen. Finally, the two leave the garden together and stop at the river.
