Can dying alone and remaining undiscovered for months be avoided?
Norihito works for a company that specializes in cleaning the apartments of the recently deceased. The lonely deaths he encounters push him to face his own family trauma. Elderly Muramatsu spends his days in isolation, but the upcoming Sakura festival might change his fate. Can he find a reason to exist? The director interweaves with impressive subtlety the storylines of several characters gravitating towards the big question: how can one avoid a lonely death? As the film unfolds, this extreme loneliness, the existence outside the social fabric, becomes the main character of the film.
