I had become good at saying goodbye to things, places and to people, until you disappeared and loss suddenly seemed like a new concept again.
A young Western woman returns to Japan to gain insight and find peace in her past relationship with her Japanese ex-lover. She tries to do this by explaining the world, more specifically by explaining impermanence.
She travels through Japan, observing nature, through the transitions of the seasons. She lets the richness of vocabulary guide her. In Japanese there are many words for natural phenomena and emotional moments for which there is no equivalent in Dutch or English. She gets a different perspective on things through Japanese culture. If she succeeds, she will be able to understand what happened to their love.
