Experiencing Interruptions?

My Endless Numbered Days

Traversing Singapore and Japan, a young woman reconnects with herself in this subdued uncovering of a wandering soul.


Mitsue returns to Japan after the disillusionment of a work opportunity in Singapore. Resuming her past life, she treads between friendships with a former lover and a new co-worker, while finding her footing despite being constantly on the move. A sense of alienation follows her from city to city as the young urbanite looks for novelty and adventure, but struggles to find a place to call home.
Through beautiful vignettes of Mitsue’s encounters with familiar faces as well as strangers, this gentle drama invites us to dwell on the stops one makes in a journey of self-discovery.

Director Statement

With my first feature film, I experimented with the filmmaking process where I prepared with the actors extensively for almost a year. Then during principal photography, I allowed the characters to take over with what they wanted to do and say within each scene in carefully crafted situations and in locations that are personal to the main lead in her personal life.
