Description

Twelve years ago, the aged residents of a highland village had no doctor. Retiring as a professor at a national university medical school, Dr. Nose Yoshiaki decided to spend the rest of his days here as their physician. He not only cares for the villagers’ health, but also uses his camera skills to record their daily lives. We see him visiting a family worried about the future of their land, checking on elderly farmers living alone, and wondering about the fate of an aged patient now in hospital.
