By poem Yoshiro Ishihara «Suijun genten» (Datum point). 
Yoshiro Ishihara (1915–1977), who burst upon the scene of Japanese modern poetry in the mid-1950s, is now remembered as a «poet of silence.» He said «A poem is an impulse to resist writing». This film is an attempt to seek out the landscape from his poem.
