Marie and her husband separate on their wedding day. Now, the young woman wants to get as far away as possible from the place of the tragic event. She travels to Japan with the organization “Clowns4Help” to help the survivors of the Fukushima catastrophe. Marie quickly realizes that she can’t carry out the task. But she doesn’t want to give up. She accompanies the ageing geisha Satomi to her destroyed house in the exclusion zone, which has been radioactively contaminated since 2011. A surprising friendship slowly forms between the two very different women, from which both have a lot to gain.
