Enchanting things have light and shade, front and side together ...

INFORMATION

Enchanting things have light and shade, front and side together. Behind the glittering beings are the ones swept away and discarded, while being sincere and having ambition are kept on the side. Because a thing has different sides, people are fascinated by it and even yearn for it.

After leaving Tokyo, where she lived for many years, and moving to Byron Bay, Akane learns about the charms of each city in stark contrasts. At the same time, paying attention to the darkness that lives on the other side, the theme is the duality of things. Greed, wealth, flatness, hedonism, orthodox fundamentalism ... they nest behind the glittering metropolis and beautiful nature, promoting their radiance.
