Kei longs for a “normal” life in rural Japan. But for a transgender man who is jobless in his own hometown, getting to normal is one steep climb, especially since Erin, his Canadian partner, longs to move to Tokyo, where they can live openly and freely. On his way to a job interview in the city, Kei meets a stranger. Abandoning his journey to help her, he discovers she is the owner of the hot springs—a place he once loved, as a child. Kei’s encounter with the healing waters is complicated by Erin’s turning up as well. Finally, the couple—one on the men’s side, the other, on the women’s—must face the truth about their divergent wishes, identities, and murky notions of belonging.
