With family, it is never too late to forgive.

After their father’s death, Mugiko and her brother have only each other left to depend on. One day, their estranged mother unexpectedly reappears in their lives, but emotions run high and reconciliation is always just out of reach. When their mother passes away just as suddenly as she appeared, Mugiko begrudgingly travels to her mother’s hometown with the weight of bitter memories and an urn in her arms to bury her mother’s ashes. There, Mugiko finds herself revisiting what she knows about her mother, and starts to discover the life and dreams of the parent she hardly knew.
