Kohei Oguri irects this sumptuously photographed free-formed tale about a beautiful corner of Japan. Consisting of a number of enigmatic, interwoven story lines, the film's title comes from Takuji, who returns to his rural hometown after journeying about the world. After an accident in the mountain where he used to play as a child, he falls into an impenetrable slumber from which he cannot awake. Other tales include: a young lad listens to folklore spun by an old man who manages a water wheel; a foreign barkeep named Tia, who harbors a mysterious past; and Takuji's childhood friend, who tells stories of the sleeping man's past.
