Keisuke Kinoshita's multi-award-winning classic is a meditative tale of love and humanity that explores traditional Japanese cultural values. The film recounts the ancient custom of younger inhabitants in a remote mountain village, who are obliged to shepherd those over the age of 70 to the top of Mount Narayama to await their death. One such elder attempts to sort out the lives of her three children before she fulfills her duty to the village.
