When the moon no longer shines, the beautiful yet obsolete Bright Moon Ryokan in Shiga is acquired by the innkeeper’s Taiwanese former lover, who sends his son to supervise the renovation. Unaware of his hidden agenda, the innkeeper is excited about the idea of turning the hotel into a wedding venue, and suggests that he learns “omotenashi”, the virtue of traditional Japanese hospitality, together with her daughter and the otaku helper. Distant yet intimate, Jay Chern’s feature debut offers a heartwarming portrayal of young people getting to appreciate different cultures, and the values of things old and new.
