In this subtle and lyrical animated feature by the co-founder (with Hayao Miyazaki) of Studio Ghibli, Taeko, a 27-year-old Tokyo office worker poised for a change in her life, takes a trip to her sister’s farm. As she travels and experiences the unfamiliar countryside, Taeko reminisces about the joys and sorrows of her childhood, and wonders: has she been true to the dreams of her youth?
