Only Yesterday

Omoide poroporo

Taeko, an office girl from Tokyo, takes a vacation in the country. There, she visits relatives and works on their farm, giving her an opportunity to reflect on her past and what her life goals might be. The film follows Taeko’s thoughts through flashbacks as she becomes aware that her life has for the most part been unfulfilling and aimless. Taeko finds a friend in Toshio, a second cousin who supports organic farming, and through their friendship she realizes that she may yet be able to build a new future.
