Did the rope bridge sway causing Cheiko (Yoko Maki) to slip or was she pushed by Minoru (Teruyuki Kagawa)? The film revolves around this incident with the main protagonist, Takeru (Jô Odagiri), Minoru's brother playing the observer. A slow deliberate drama that throws death into familial tensions spiced with love life of the brothers. Watching the film is like walking slowly across the rope bridge that features so prominently in the film. If you are not careful, you will find yourself swaying.
