Synopsis: Single 40-something Yoshiko (Yasuko Matsuyuki) spends her days enjoying life’s simple pleasures, riding her bike to work, enjoying a drop of her favorite drink in the evening, and writing in her journal. But when she begins spending more time with her spry young colleague Wakabayashi (Haru Kuroki), she is soon confronted with the possibility of romance. With a much younger man. Through this season of romance, Yoshiko reflects on her past and her hopes for the future.
The third installment in her films about the inner lives of women, director Akiko Ohku (TREMBLE ALL YOU WANT, MARRIAGE HUNTING BEAUTY) masterfully unfolds the life of Yoshiko by weaving her inner monologue throughout the film creating a delightful and intimate portrait of a woman in mid-life.
