The Departure

After a youth full of drinking and night clubs, Ittetsu Nemoto was in a near fatal motorcycle accident. Hospitalized for three months, he realized how precious life was and became a Zen Buddhist monk. Now, in a temple nestled between rice fields and forested hills in rural Japan, his life's work is to save people from committing suicide. "What makes life worth living?" he asks. This question fuels his unconventional approach to suicide prevention. Retreats, pilgrimages, meditation, and collaborative art projects help patients realize what they'd be leaving behind. While Nemoto helps others rediscover their will to live, he must also practice what he preaches. His work begins to take a toll on his family and health, and Nemoto must learn to draw the line between his patients and his own life.
