Aida is a lonely foreigner in Germany working as a dental assistant, living a paranoia that leads her to believe that radiation is causing hallucinations in her mind. Joaquin is a musician in a Mexican border town struggling to overcome the death of his brother related to narco violence. As both protagonists begin their existential search, they are guided by mythical tales told by real people. Their quests merge in a deserted island off the coast of Nagasaki, Japan, where completely stranded, they surrender themselves to memories of the island. Compassing between reality, nonfiction and the supernatural, they shall search for their own definition of liberation.

Japanese artist and filmmaker Shinpei Takeda has lived and worked in Düsseldorf and Tijuana for 8 years. His work revolves around themes of memory and history. More information: www.shinpeitakeda.com
