Director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi's follow-up to his Academy Award®-winning Drive My Car is a foreboding fable on humanity's mysterious, mystical relationship with nature. In a rural village not far from Tokyo, the townsfolk become aware of a company’s plan to build an opulent campsite, offering city residents a comfortable “escape” to the snowy wilderness. As sinister gunshots echo from the forest, both the locals and company representatives confront their life choices and the haunting consequences they have.
