Six women attempt to make it in current day Tokyo, living their everyday lives the best and worst they can. For them, every little moment becomes a ritual of the ordinary and the exciting, a balancing act for their dreams and hopes as the days perpetually tug on their heartstrings.

Tokyo.sora is serene and beautiful. And be extremely patient with its beauty.

It hints at damping, decaying mists that would lifelessly flow and twine into your heart. Well, it revolves around 6 women in their most mundane stage of life. They do nothing on the quirky side. But the film's undercurrent of repression is contagious. No, actually, it is revealing. Whether you are on cloud nine or on the verge of mental breakdown, you would find yourself in these women. It reveals the congenital, implanted inclination of existential frustration, temporal and flickering ecstasy, surrendering adjustment, and fragile bonds between us all.

It makes me think of Albert Camus. "From the moment absurdity is recognized, it becomes a passion, the most harrowing of all. .. Does the realization of the absurd require suicide?"

In Tokyo.sora, you will explore the director's perspective to this classic inquiry.
