Clumsy university student Noriko lacks confidence and isn’t really sure what she wants to do with her life. But she finds her calling when she starts attending a Japanese tea ceremony class near her house, together with her more sociable cousin. A modest, contemplative and beautiful film about the power of tradition, starring legendary actress KIKI Kirin (Shoplifters) in her final role.

De onhandige student Noriko heeft weinig zelfvertrouwen en weet niet zo goed wat ze later wil worden. Maar dan vindt ze haar roeping als ze samen met haar nicht lessen begint te volgen in het uitvoeren van theeceremonies. Een bescheiden, bedachtzame en prachtige film over de kracht van traditie, met de legendarische actrice KIKI Kirin (Shoplifters) in haar allerlaatste rol als wijze, oude dame.
