[Synopsis]
The film begins after Kazuo's injury and with his son, Yoshito Ohno at one of his Butoh workshops.
In the workshop Kazuo somewhat awkwardly tries to perform by lying on a floor and rolling using his body. No matter what, wanting to dance the way he once could. Eventually that desire and strong determination help lead to his recovery, as Kazuo's movement begins to return to it's free moving style.
His recovery improved from that point on and Kazuo came to celebrate his 95th birthday.
The performance was done having him seated in a chair because he was unable to stand. And interacting with the space around him as if it were alive, he was dancing with his upper body and hand gestures. It ended wonderfully with this contrast of serenity and movement.
One prefecture's district administration recognized Kazuo Ohno's long years of effort and for that they presented him with a Distinguished Service Award.After receiving this prestigious award Kazuo felt Butoh's strong call to return, much to the good fortune of the audience.At this very blissful time for Kazuo Ohno, only he knows until when he will continue dancing.
