Petal Dance

When old college friends Jinko and Motoko hear that former classmate Miki is in hospital after falling into the sea, they decide to visit her. They are joined on this impromptu road-trip by unemployed Haraki who has offered to be their driver for the two days. As it has been six years since the friends have seen Miki, they start to contemplate their own lives and feelings when it becomes apparent that Miki’s accident was intentional. Their road trip becomes a life-affirming journey.
