Told through an eloquent mixture of traditional Japanese dance, modern movement techniques, origami, and puppets, this original adaptation of Italian novella by Alessandro Baricco, takes us on a journey of discovery, passion and immeasurable pain, as experienced by Hervé Joncour, whose travels from France to Japan in 1860's yield much more than the silkworms he was sent to buy.
