Synopsis

If you were allowed to keep just one memory for eternity what would it be? It's a tough question that's beautifully explored in this Japanese fantasy drama that imagines our fate when we die. Set in a transit station between Heaven and Earth, the moving and ingenious tale sees the newly deceased asked to pick the single most meaningful moment from their existence, which will then be recreated on film to carry into the afterlife. Compassionate counsellors help them with their soul-searching, with the resulting decisions including a first kiss and a Disneyland visit. The feature draws on real people's recollections, and leaves you thinking about the value of your own experiences.
