When a renowned architecture scholar falls suddenly ill during a speaking tour, his son Jin finds himself stranded in Columbus, Indiana – a small Midwestern city celebrated for its modernist buildings. Jin strikes up a friendship with Casey, a young architecture enthusiast. As their intimacy develops, Jin and Casey explore both the town and their conflicted emotions. With its naturalistic rhythms and empathy for the complexities of families, debut director Kogonada’s film unfolds as a gently drifting, deeply absorbing conversation.
