In these unpredictable times, we seem to be wandering in the woods.
Some days are bright and warm, others are dark and stormy.

In the depths of the forest, a beautiful woman finds a ray of light. She follows it to an imposing classical residence, the door of which could be the portal to a new age.
Inside, men and women, all unique individuals, are engaged in a futuristic parallel world. What is she thinking? Which direction will she take?

Celebrating the collective human legacy, this short film aims to capture authentic beauty tinged with a neo-futuristic flavor.

The music created by actor/musician Nobuaki Kaneko, heard through headphones or earphones, presents a dynamic “three-dimensional” echoing sensation.
Together with top models, artist Matt Rose, and Tokyo Ballet principal Dan Tsukamoto, co-star as symbolic icons modelling the collection, creating a rigorous study of beauty with their differing genres.
