German filmmaker Doris Dorrie writes and directs this subtle drama exploring themes of love, death and quiet longing. When an elderly German woman, Trudi (Hannelore Eisner), learns that her husband Rudi (Elmar Wepper) is terminally ill, she chooses not to tell him, and instead suggests that they take a trip to visit their grown-up children. When Trudi dies along the way, Rudi learns that his wife has always longed to go to Japan, and heads there during the cherry blossom season (Hanami) to fulfil her wishes and take stock of his life.
