Takuan Girl

Takuan Girl

Director : Taira Abe

Kei Koyanagawa is a woman who loves "takuan" (yellow pickled daikon radish) so much that she derives happiness from it. One day when she tries to eat takuan for breakfast, it suddenly vanishes from the table. Not only does it disappear from her dining table, but it also disappears from the rest of the world and from the memories of everyone except Kei. After the loss of takuan, she tries to find solace in other kinds of pickles. Shibazuke, tsubozuke, nukazuke, fukujinzuke, kimchi, etc. But she realizes that nothing can take the place of takuan and becomes socially withdrawn.
