When the moon no longer shines, the beautiful yet obsolete Bright Moon Ryokan in Kyoto is acquired by the innkeeper’s Taiwanese former lover, who sends his son to supervise the renovation. Unaware of his hidden agenda, the innkeeper suggests that he learns “omotenashi,” the virtue of traditional Japan. Filmmaker and cast in attendance. Part of the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival.
