'Are there things we fail to understand even though we see them? Are there things we can understand even if we can't see them?' Such are the questions Naomi Kawase raises here. Misako (Ayame Misaki) finds her voice in an unusual profession – she writes audio descriptions of films for the visually impaired and sees this painstaking work as a vehicle for capturing the beauty of cinema.
The poetry of film binds the young girl to Nakamori (Masatoshi Nagase), a photographer who is living the most dramatic period of her life as her sight gradually fails. Light radiates through the film and slowly wins the hearts of the protagonists.
