Four relatives of the cultist perpetrators of a deadly terrorist attack meet to journey to a remote lake. Loosely inspired by the 1995 sarin gas attacks on the Tokyo subway committed by extremist Buddhist cult Aum Shinrikyo, Kore-eda’s slow-burn, subtly ambiguous drama is less about terrorism than about the question of how fully we can understand human motivation or know the people we love.
