a film by Naomi Kawase
French female essayist Jeanne writes a travel essay while touring the world. She travels to Yoshino in the Nara prefecture of Japan to research a rare herb that appears only once in every 997 years.
She meets Sami, a mountain native, who introduces her to the unique ecology of the region. Despite their language and cultural boundaries, Sami and Jeanne find a connection that transcends their differences and allows each to come to a new and profound understanding.
Vision is acclaimed director Naomi Kawase's follow up to the critically acclaimed Still the Water and Radiance and continues her exploration of nature and the cycle of life, deeply rooted in her native Nara region.
