A movie by director Naomi Kawase (Sweet bean) where we meet the young woman Misako (Ayame Misaki) who make film versions for the visually impaired. On a filmshow for visually impaired, Misaki's interpretation is criticized by a middle-aged photographer named Masaya (Masatoshi Nagase). He means that she puts too much of her own feelings when she describes the images in the film. This is the beginning of a staggering relationship, where conversations about images and imagination are in focus, and together they learn to see the world in a new way, and while Masaya is losing sight, he continues to photograph as much as possible with his camera. Jens Peterson on Aftonbladet thinks this is "a beautiful film about the sunset of life and about lights that disappear". Björn Jansson on Sweden's Radio P4 believes that the movie "is windy, it's about loss ... mortality. How the beautiful slides away ".
