The film follows an old ferryman in a remote Meiji-era community.
His life is a peaceful, cyclical existence, given meaning by the essential role he plays in transporting people, livestock and goods across the water, connecting villages and lives.
When news arrives that a bridge is being built, it’s clear that his services will no longer be needed.
Meanwhile, his life will be equally transformed by the appearance of a mysterious young woman whom he saves from drowning.
