While visiting Japan, filmmaker Ila Bêka (The Infinite Happiness) finds himself living for a week with Mr. Moriyama, a devotee of art and music who lives in one of the most famous examples of contemporary Japanese architecture, the Moriyama house, built in Tokyo in 2005 by Pritzker-prize winner Ryue Nishizawa (SANAA). Together, they drink beer, listen to noise music, and experience together this small archipelago of peace and contemplation in the urban center of Tokyo.
