Twenty-year-old Haruka doesn’t know what to do with her life when she stumbles upon an exhibition of Bizen pottery. She becomes so fascinated with a beautifully crafted bowl that she spontaneously decides to quit her office job in Tokyo and to move to the pottery village.
There she hopes to become an apprentice to the bowl maker, but the young artist isn’t really interested. Since the death of his parents, he has closed himself off from almost everyone. But Haruka does not intend to give up so easily. With a meticulous eye for detail, this is a loving ode to a craft that has been passed on from generation to generation for many centuries.
