- Synopsis / Plot
- Jeanne, a French journalist, comes to Japan in search of 'Vision', a rare medicinal herb said to strip away all spiritual anguish and weaknesses in human beings. She knows that 'Vision' only appears once every 997 years under special conditions and that time is near. Aki, a wise villager who knows the forest well, prophesies the arrival of the mysterious 'One' and then disappears. Tomo, who was devoted to Aki, works as a keeper of the forests and is beginning to sense, instinctively, recent changes in the mountains. Is there a connection between the disappearance of Aki and the changes taking place in the forest? Will Jeanne succeed in finding the phantom herb Vision? A millennial event is taking place in the Yoshino mountains of Nara, opening a door to the One and the true potential of human existence.
