After he receives an unexpected letter from an old friend of his mother, Yuki Kawamura flies back to Japan with his camera, and takes his father on a roadtrip to meet all the people who knew Norie, Yuki ‘s mother, who died when he was only three years old, thus drawing a portrait of his long lost mother, and the woman his father once loved. Through this journey we discover how the memories a son never had, and the memories his father wishes he could forget, come to light for the very first time, drawing a subtle and powerful portrait of the woman they both lost.
