Cherry BlossomsIn theaters: January 16th, 2009 Copyright © 2009 Strand Releasing
The story of Trudi and Rudi, a long-married couple who travel to the German countryside to visit their children only to realize that they’re emotionally distant and unavailable. When Trudi unexpectedly dies, a grief-stricken Rudi vows to honor her unfulfilled desires by embarking on a life-changing journey to Japan, a place Trudi always wanted to visit. A trip to Tokyo in the midst of the cherry blossom festival sparks an unlikely friendship with a young woman who helps connect Rudi with his wife’s lifelong love for the dance. CHERRY BLOSSOMS is a poignant celebration of beauty and new beginnings.
