When Yasaka walks into Toshio’s home workshop after 11 years in prison, he asks his old pal for a job and a place to sleep. Toshio obliges out of more than friendly duty; however, as Yasaka befriends Toshio’s wife Akié and starts teaching their daughter Hotaru to play the harmonium, the family’s fragile domestic bliss is forever altered. ‘Expertly calibrated to reflect emotional realities … the film’s insights into the isolation evident in the relationships most take for granted – marriages, parent-child connections and long-term friendships – don’t merely hit their targets; they smash them with a sledgehammer.’ (Screen Daily)
