This charming, unassuming film revolves around a young woman, Chinatsu, and her single mother Akiko, whose quiet and uneventful life together is upended when Chinatsu has to be re-tested for breast cancer.  

Akiko’s anxiety and worries increase, while Chinatsu wonders what her future will hold.

This moving and heartfelt film has a beautiful mother and daughter relationship at its core.
