At the age of 67, Tomoaki Sunada retired from a company he dedicated his life to for over 40 years, ready to start enjoying the next chapter of his life. However, at the annual physical check-up, he is diagnosed with terminal cancer with only a few months left to live. Relying on his pragmatic skills that made him a successful salesman, he faces the end of his life as one last big project: the ending note. From planning the funeral to saying “I love you” to his wife for the first time, he must accomplish his list of tasks before the final deadline. In a voice over, using words taken from her father’s journal, filmmaker Mami Sunada makes her directorial debut in this moving tribute to her father. Produced by the acclaimed director Hirokazu Kore-eda (I Wish, Nobody Knows), the documentary turns the pain of loss into a celebratory and life-affirming message.
