Synopsis

What does it take to change a solitary life? After twenty years, an old man, widowed by the recent floods in a small Romanian village, and his son, living in Japan, see each other again. Their expectations run high, and during this brief reencounter they try to overcome the distance that has grown between them. When his son and his family have to part, they leave him a Japanese Robodog as a souvenir of their visit that will change his life forever.
