Synopsis

Gifted with a strange heritage, Akiko goes back to Japan, following her mother’s footsteps, a movie star from the 1970’s. Among her Japanese family, she discovers an intimate land, laden with secrets, where she belongs even without her knowing. From the French Nouvelle Vague to the ghosts of Hiroshima, Akiko takes us with her in a mother-daughter dialogue that goes across time.
