Shingo and Ritsuko have a nineteen-month-old baby Takashi. People consider them a happy couple. However Ritsuko soon wants to find out the true father of Takashi who was born with artificial insemination. “A family without a child is like a boat without sails unable to move. And a boat unable to move is not a boat. “ K. Yoshida.
Kiju Yoshida’s magnificent film shot in sumptuous black and white reflects upon motherhood and mainly fatherhood, while it also questions the meaning of family.
