Synopsis
In the Japanese region Echigo, the locals live with and under the heavy snow fall half of the year. Because of this they have developed their own customs of everyday life, festivals, and religious rituals. In a poetic way Ulrike Ottinger leads us into the reality of the snow landscape with its beauty and austere living conditions, follows the mythical tracks of the "gods of paths and roads" and mountain spirits, and places us within the fairytale world of a beautiful fox and her lover.
