In Competition – Feature Films
Directed by :
Shinji AOYAMA 
217.00 minutes


In Kyushu, southwest Japan, one hot summer morning, a municipal bus is hijacked. In the carnage only three people survive: the driver, Makoto, a school girl, Kozue, and her older brother, Naoki.
Suffering from trauma, Makoto disappears. The children withdraw in silence. Two years later, their mother has divorced and their father dies at the wheel of his car. They now live alone in the family house.
Makoto returns to town and takes up household with the children, who are soon joined by their cousin, Akihiko, a student on vacation from college.
The body of a murdered woman is discovered on the river bank; and the police suspect Makoto.
Soon after, he buys an old bus; fits it with beds; and invites the three young people to leave on a trip.
