Director Ise Shinichi’s peerless documentary lovingly chronicles 35 years of his niece Nao’s life with her older brother, parents, and friends. Because of a disability, doctors did not expect Nao to live more than 20 years. Shinichi documents the unexpected steps of her story, from when Nao was 8 to the present. The film moves beyond mere advocacy to create a complex, moving portrait of the manifold ways each member of a family affects the others.
