Shigeki lives in a small retirement home. He feels comfortable and happy there with the other residents and the gentle and caring hospital staff. Machiko, one of the home's staff, pays special attention to him. However, she is secretly haunted by the loss of her child. After celebrating Shigeki's birthday Machiko decides to take him for a drive into the countryside. Making their way along the scenic backroads the car is forced into a ditch by a land-slide, and it is here that they embark on their journey of discovery. As Shigeki determinedly heads off into the forest, Machiko has no choice but to follow. After two exhausting days trudging through the dense wood they finally arrive at Shigeki's wife's tomb.
