“Why continue singing? Why continue travelling? Be sure to watch! There is no end to this journey.”
In the 80s, Michiro Endo founded "The Stalin", a pioneering punk band in Japan. On his 60th birthday in 2011, he and his band had a reunion tour throughout the whole of Japan, meanwhile his hometown Fukushima is destroyed by the violence of nature. In this Documentary Endo deals with his life issues: being a musician, confronting his family, and dealing age and eventual death.
