Life on a Sloping Farm
Nishiokada Haruki (82) and his wife Setsuko (75) live in the mountains of Tokushima Prefecture where they've farmed a steeply sloped plot of land for more than 50 years, doing all the work by hand. The elderly couple work together to harvest their buckwheat crop and make their special buckwheat rice, finding joy in the small details. Meanwhile, their community is shrinking as their aging neighbors pass away. The film tells the story of a couple's ups and downs on a sloping farm.
