The Spring of a Sanatorium

23-25 Aug, 2019



In 1910, there was a sanatorium in the small island where tubercular patients were gathered, who at that time thought to be incurables.

They were the ones abandoned from the society, left with nothing but to wait for the death.

However the story has changed when the news breaks the Halley’s flyby of Earth and that an astronomer theorized that the comet would unceremoniously end life.

While the whole world is in panic, patients starts to come to life.

Is it hope that are waiting for them, or...?

Based on true stories both happened in the year of 1910; The panic over Halley’s comet, and the very first bloom of olive flowers here in Shodoshima, the original story was weaved.
