    • Synopsis
    • Japan, turn of the XIXth century. Presiding over the grandstand, the very young emperor is about to witness an extraordinary performance. In the heart of the Japanese Alps, a very talented French female tightrope walker is going walk on a thin steel rope, crossing two snow-capped mountain tops. Using the lighted end of her balancing pole, she writes a haiku in the dark twilight sky… before disappearing forever swallowed by the deep mountains.
      On this cable bonding France with Japan, Neige’s destiny gathers an ex-samurai who became a great artist out of love for her, their daughter and a young poet at odds with Japanese tradition.
