In 1990, a two-year-old girl goes missing in a small Chiba town. Behind what is known as the case of missing Sakura Kiuchi, often referred to as the modern-day "spirited away," lies the secret saga of a family whose life was upturned by the incident. Set in 1990, 2012, and 2035, this striking film gradually uncovers the remarkable truth about three generations of women, each constrained to live in constant lies in order to protect their own sad secrets.
