Two years after his wife’s unexpected death, renowned stage director Yusuke Kafuku receives an offer to direct a production of Uncle Vanya at a theater festival in Hiroshima. There, he meets Misaki Watari, a taciturn young woman assigned by the festival to chauffeur him in his beloved red Saab 900.
At the festival, tensions mount amongst the cast and crew, not least between Yusuke and Koji Takatsuki, a handsome TV star with an unwelcome connection to Yusuke’s late wife. Forced to confront painful truths raised from his past, Yusuke begins — with the help of his driver — to face the haunting mysteries his wife left behind.
