Summary
A Japanese female priest, a rarity in Japan, talks about her past, but refuses to speak about her experiences as a woman. A visit with the priest's mysterious successor, who is also a woman, inspires the filmmakers to explore the older nun's unspoken feeling while they themselves struggle to find happiness and freedom in their immigrant life in New York. What began as a simple portrait turns into a genre-bending detective documentary, with full force demystifying energy and a dash of spritual nourishment
