This film experimentally documents the director's dialogue with migrant youth in Kani city in Gifu prefecture through artistic expression. It innovatively elucidates multicultural situations in Japan.
Kani City has the migrant population of 5%, which is the 3rd highest ratio among all Japanese cities. The majority of the migrants came from Brazil and Philippines. In some ways the city exhibits the future of Japan where migrants youth faces problems such as education and bullying.
