34 year old Misaki has just learned that her father, who disappeared in a boating accident, has been legally declared dead. Devoted to his memory, she accepts his debts and his one remaining asset, a boathouse in a small town at the tip of Nota Peninsula where Misaki was born.

No Longer Available.
  • She decides to move her coffee shop there, hoping to meet her father again. Eriko, a young single mother, works long hours as a hostess, neglecting her children. Thrown together as unwilling neighbours, Eriko and Misaki clash at first, but begin to sow the seeds of an unlikely friendship.

    Taiwanese director Chiang Hsiu-Chiung creates a moving story about grief, family and friendship that will touch audiences. The Furthest End Awaits has won the award for Best Actress and the Audience Award for International New Talent at the 2015 Taipei Film Festival.
