Program Note

Cheng Liang, a young Chinese man who desperately needs money to reopen his late father’s auto repair shop, decides to move to Japan and lands a job in a traditional soba restaurant with a fake identity. As Hiroshi, the restaurant owner and a soba master, treats him like a son, he becomes emotionally attached to Hiroshi and his family despite the fear of his real identity being disclosed at any moment. Following Cheng Liang’s changing state of mind due to a juxtaposition of his past, present, and future through a series of static images, the film shows the dilemma of Asian Societies going through enormous changes between tradition and modernity.
