A Midsummer’s Fantasia

A Korean director and his interpreter visit an almost abandoned Japanese village to research a film project. They discover an aging community on the verge of fading away after being abandoned by its younger members for the cities. Inspired by the first half of the film, the latter part of the story follows a young Korean actress who gradually develops a connection with a Japanese persimmon farmer.
