Synopsis

Veteran African-American actor Bennet Guillory plays a grieving father who goes to Japan to collect his dead son's belongings, and meets prejudice, including his own – his father died brutally in a Japanese POW camp. The bridge itself, an ancient bridge still standing, is a fine metaphor for the connections between ancient and modern, East and West, that unfold.

Critics

open_quote First time writer-director Aaron Woolfolk is obviously on a mission of his own with this tale of cross-cultural redemption, and his camera absolutely loves Japan without relying on the typical Tokyo sparkle. close_quote Tom Long, Detroit News
