“In a faceless apartment in Tatekawa, Tokyo, an American woman hires a Japanese woman to translate interviews about Japan’s declining birthrate.”, that is the beginning of Shelly Silver’s movie and the beginning of a story about love and lust, about the aim to understand outherness and about an unacceptability of some relations and a majority disapproval of different stories.
