A film about purpose in life, seen through the eyes of a Buddhist monk and his son.
Director//Yoko Okumura - yok
Producer//Christopher Ruiz

I'd say through the eyes of the whole family. High production quality. Neat flick. - dc

Check out Yoko Film dot com and read the bio. Impressive. (Elin and I met the whole family in 1991 at their home and zendo outside of Kyoto. Kudos to them all. - dc)
