Summary:Chigiri Yamazaki is a divorced single mother who has returned to
Tsurugi City with her 11 year old daughter to care for her ailing
father--a famouse sword maker whose business has completely faltered.
It falls upon Chigiri to keep dept collectors at bay.Go Imai, a
freelance documentary maker, is on a business trip from Tokyo and has
decided to stop by this little town of Tsurugi, where he had come to
do a story on Chigiri's father 25 years ago. Go reunites with
Chigiri, and the two begin a love story of epic consequence and
passion reminiscent of the works of Marguerite Duras and Alice Munro,
set against the backdrop of bucolic Japan.
