In a desolate zone quarantined after a great catastrophe, a girl lives alone in a small house. Like restless domestic spirits, her household articles chatter and squabble among themselves, an audience to the moments of her strange life. The chief animator of MISS HOKUSAI, Yoshimi Itazu, makes his directorial debut with this quietly powerful fable for a nation haunted by enormous loss, adapting the award-winning manga MITSUAMI NO KAMI-SAMA by Machiko Kyo.
