Abstract: Two generations of the Nonezawa family--Asafumi and his wife Shizuka, and Asafumi's grandfather Rentaro and his Malayan lover Saya--are connected across the years by the mysterious Mandala Road, which simultaneously casts Asafumi and Rentaro from their respective ages into a haunting post-apocalyptic world. As becomes apparent, Asafumi, Rentaro, Saya, and Shizuka are all, in their own way, on a private journey to discover and reconcile themselves with their memories of violence, both seen and experienced, as they learn to live with a past that seems always to be too close behind them.
