This is a story about a mountain village in Japan. Like many other local villages in Japan, the population of this village is aging as well as decreasing.

The film is focusing on the process of change and stage as a knot where various actors, including a filmmaker, interact with each other.

While the whole film depicts a process of inevitable change of the traditional village located in the global world, it shows a process of discovering precious memories as well as lively voices of respective individuals recalled through dialog with the filmmaker.
