  • Synopsis

85 years old and never married, Shizu has spent the past 3 decades living in one “Danchi” – the Japanese word for public housing – and filling it with the lifetime of souvenirs that have always kept her company. When the danchi is scheduled for demolition, Shizu and neighbors must say goodbye to their homes, and move into newer danchi that are too small to hold all of Shizu’s momentos.
