Daigo takes a certain pride in his work and begins to perfect the art of "Nokanshi," acting as a gentle gatekeeper between life and death, between the departed andthe family of the departed. The film follows his profound and sometimes comical journeywith death as he uncovers the wonder, joy and meaning of life and living.
