* with English subtitle

An 18-year-old girl named Yamame is informed of the existence of her living grandparents right before she leaves the group home where she grew up. Her grandfather is on death row and her grandmother has dementia. We are first drawn into the story by the positive way she accepts these facts without surprise or dejection. The young man who takes care of Yamame's grandmother records the sounds of the casual, ordinary daily activities in the city. These sounds help us realize the value of being alive and fill our hearts with profound emotion.
