93-year-old Zen monk Henry Mittwer, suspected by the Japanese secret police and interned by the United States during World War II, has a lifelong love of movies. This dizzying film, incorporating animation and fictional reenactments, traces his life across two countries, his turn to Zen and the tea ceremony, and his endless worldly desire: to produce a film of his own.
Film is followed by Q&A with director Nakamura Takayuki.
