    • Synopsis
    • Emma, who is suffering from memory loss, goes in search of a missing childhood friend, Yan. During her journey of search, Emma follows his traces and meets Yan's close friends. However the more she gets close to his existence, the faster her memories start vanishing. Will her wish to see him again come true before her precious memories of him disappear? Emma's journey of lost memories is shot in a natural-based lighting and gentle cinematography with great scenery of summer. The film has a sense of unbelongingness as if it tells Emma's situation. This is the debut film by Riho Kudo, a young and talented independent filmmaker from Japan. She won the Grand Prize at Pia Film Festival 2018 and the Grand Prize (Golden KOJIMA prize) of NARA-wave at Nara International Film Festival 2018.
