**Winner of the Kinema Junpo Awards for Best Film and Best Actress and Best Film Awards from Eiga Geijustu Magazine and the Yokohama Film Festival. ** This intense erotic drama finds Kenji drifting home to Akita after the collapse of his marriage and career. He is there to attend the wedding of his past lover Naoko who still keeps an album of erotic photos tracing their relationship. She invites him to share her bed for one last night of intimacy but a single night proves inadequate to contain their passion and they set off on a five-day road trip. As the intensity of their erotic escape escalates, and with the return to Naoko’s fiancé imminent, they face a terrible decision. Physically explicit and emotionally raw.
