What memory would you take to eternity?

From the award-winning director Kore-eda Hirokazu (Maborosi) comes a remarkably touching film exploring the profound human need to discover meaning in everyday life.

Many films have offered insight into the unexplainable realm of the after life.In Kore-eda's thought-provoking vision, the newly deceased find themselves in a way station somewhere between Heaven and Earth.

With the help of dedicated caseworkers, each soul is given three days to choose one cherished memory from their life that they will relive for eternity.As the film reveals, recognizing happiness and finding a life's worth of meaning in a single event is no simple task.If Heaven is only a single memory from your life, as Kore-eda suggests, which memory would you choose?
