A widower meets a man who can change the weather. A middle aged woman attempts to freeze to death; A young man attempts to starve to death. A young woman navigates in a foreign city, constructing a new identity. A dancer is forced to accept a ride home from a bar comedian. A divorcee meets an elderly Japanese woman… From the sombre offices of Tokyo to the ESL classrooms of Toronto, see how they find their own therapeutic ways to reconcile with their loss, agony, and despair.
Erika thinks it's a perfect day to die. It's sunny. No ribbons of cloud in the transparent blue sky. Who'd think she was depressed because of the weather? She hates the blue sky. So painful. It's like Zumba when you aren't feeling like a party. It's like the feigned Christmas spirit when you aren't feeling like a family reunion. Great that Pink Floyd sang blue sky and pain.
