Cherry Blossoms (Kirschbluten-Hanami)
Only Trudi knows that her husband Rudi is suffering from a terminal illness. She decides not to tell him and convinces him to visit their family in Berlin. Then, suddenly, Trudi dies. Rudi is devastated but vows to make up for her lost life. And so he embarks on his last journey--to Tokyo--in the midst of the cherry blossom festival, a celebration of beauty, impermanence and new beginnings.
