Trudi and Rudi, a long-married couple, travel to Berlin from the countryside to visit their children and grandchildren only to realize that they are emotionally distant and unavailable. When Trudi unexpectedly dies, a grief stricken Rudi vows to honor her unfulfilled desires by embarking on a life-changing journey to Japan, a place Trudi often dreamed of but never visited. A trip to Tokyo in the midst of the cherry blossom festival sparks an unlikely friendship with a young Butoh dancer who helps connect Rudi with his wifeâs lifelong love for the dance.
