About the film: (Dir. Yuki Saito)

When they are twenty, two woman, twins born among the fragrant cedar-filled mountains of Kyoto and separated at birth, meet by chance at a summer festival in the old capital. One lives in the mountains working the trees, the other adopted by a couple running a traditional kimono shop. The city girl frets whether to continue the business. They meet, then part, the city girl giving her sister a silk kimono sash.

They never meet again. Twenty-three years later, their daughters, age twenty, face the future with the bewilderment of selecting an established path or one of their own. The mountains twin pursues her artistic dreams in Paris, while her sister chooses between the family shop and finding her own calling. Mothers guide daughters, but the choices must be their own, tangled with fate.
