It is a day around 1930. People are waiting at a cinema in the Japanese countryside for the arrival of the silent film, "Utsukushiki Tennen". The boy delivering the final reel of the film finds out about the tragic ending of the story in which his favorite leading actress is cast. He buries the film on the beach and disappears. Time passes. A woman who is sunk in sorrow due to the loss of her husband stays in her room and paints flowers. She lives with her daughter who watches after her but does so somewhat coldly. The distant relationship between the two begins to grow complicated when the father of the mother's husband suddenly comes to live at their home. Two eras are woven together. The old man, who was that delivery boy, thinks about the film he buried at the beach and anguishes that someone may still be waiting for it. He sees his life fading away. The cinema that lives on in memory; a film screening that transcends time.
