Videographer Koichi Hozan has terminal cancer, yet he continues filming the landscape of Nara Prefecture in Japan. His collection of works portraying the transition of the seasons is considered awe-inspiring and provokes emotions among those who see the images. This spring, he's set his focus on a weeping cherry tree. As it approaches its final days, the tree is trying to blossom one last time. We follow Hozan as he goes on shooting Nara's scenery while facing his own mortality.
