"★★★★ – a richly painful and quietly comic human drama" – Guardian
Taeko lives a tranquil life with her husband Jiro, and Keita, her son from a previous marriage. But when a devastating accident thrusts Keita’s father back into her life, Taeko is swept up in the waves of guilt and begins to take on the responsibility of helping her deaf and now homeless ex-husband.
Avoiding all the clichés of steamy affairs with re-emerged exes, Kôji Fukada’s touching drama is a poignant observation of communication, hope and life after tragedy.
