This movie takes place in Tokyo during the Olympics amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Tired of rushing through life, young people gather at a small guesthouse in Tokyo, where they explore their own paths and grow through new relationships and experiences. The youthful ensemble drama is centered around the theme of “break” and depicts the modest growth of young people.


A delightful film full of insight into Japanese culture.  Poignant, fun and enlightening with depth and introspection.
