Synopsis:  A group of middle-aged ladies gets lost during a trip into the woods.  “Cast from an audition open to amateurs and based on Okita’s own script, the film is somewhat like a reality show, with the lost-in-the-woods situation used to bring out each participant’s true personality and amusing foibles.  Director Okita presents us with a wonderful display of improbable adventurers.” From Variety Japan correspondent, Mark Schilling.
