Naomi Kawase's new film weaves a complex tale of adoption and motherhood, shot with purposeful clarity and transparency, and lashings of humility. The director's impressionistic, sensuous style is on full display here in her inserts of the wind and other snapshots of the landscape in which her characters are embedded. A humanistic telling of a poignant story.

After a long and unsuccessful struggle to get pregnant, convinced by the discourse of an adoption association, Satoko and her husband decide to adopt a baby boy. A few years later, their paernthood is shaken by a threatening unknown girl, Hikari, who pretends to be the child's biological mother. Satoko decides to confront Hikari directly.
