Featuring non-professional actors from the local community, the film is a gentle and poignant portrait of a humble community that is deeply rooted in its local history and tradition. Tomoe, a career woman working in Tokyo, visits her hometown where the preparation for a winter festival “Hadaka’n Gyo” is underway. Her traditional parents welcome Tomoe, but complain that she should come home more often. The reason why she returned is to inform her parents about her divorce, but she can’t bring herself to tell the truth.
