96% on Rotten Tomatoes


Hirayama seems utterly content with his simple life as a cleaner of toilets in Tokyo. Outside of his very structured everyday routine he enjoys his passion for music and for books. And he loves trees and takes photos of them. A series of unexpected encounters gradually reveal more of his past.

A deeply moving and poetic reflection on finding beauty in the everyday world around us.
