Summary: The Acclaimed Zen Comedy by Award-winning Director Doris Dorrie

A brilliant comedy about self discovery. "Washington Post"
Snappy, well-scripted comedy. "Variety"
A warm, closely observed satire of lived life, and it is a charmer. "SF Chronicle"

Brothers Uwe and Gustav are comfortable middle class family men in modern Munich. An unexpected divorce and a long planned retreat suddenly collide, and they're on their own, lost in Tokyo. Finally arriving at a Zen monastery, can they find their way?

Filmed on location at Sojiji Monastery, Monzen, Japan
