Last Shadow at First Light

Film Synopsis

Sixteen-year-old Ami, haunted by recurring apparitions, embarks on a journey from Singapore to Japan in search of her missing mother. On arrival in Tokyo, a cynical taxi-driving uncle whom she meets for the first time becomes her custodian and reluctant guide to the family hometown and its past. Amid the transforming landscapes, Ami’s dreams, hallucinations and lost mother unveil their true form.
