On discovering that her husband Rudi (Elmar Wepper) is terminally ill, Trudi (Hannelore Elsner) hides the fact from him. Instead she suggests a visit to Berlin to visit their children. But one can never plan around death in spite of its inevitability. The film floats to Tokyo and shows you the suffering of spouse grieving the absence of a loved one. Like the user comments at IMDB says, the movie is one part Lost in Translation, one part Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles and all parts brilliant.
