Jeanne, a French journalist, comes to Japan in search of “Vision,” a rare medicinal herb that grows once in a millenial – every 997 years, in specific – and is said to strip away all spiritual anguish and weaknesses in human beings. Aki, a wise villager who knows the forest well, shares a prophecy about the arrival of the mysterious “One” and then disappears. As Jeanne gets closer to Tomo, the forest’s keeper who was devoted to Aki, a millennial event is taking place in the Yoshino mountains, opening a door to the One and the true potential of human existence. A unique cinematic metaphysical vision, made by the most important directors of the Far East.
