A British sake manufacturer, an American journalist, and the young president of a distillery in Japan gather to explore the mysterious world of Japanese rice wine and its history.

Panorama / Eat & Drink
Premier latinoamericana

Finding a meaning to one’s life is complicated. It’s something not everyone succeeds in identifying. What do a journalist, an English teacher, and the owner of a distillery have in common? A passion, a determination having devoted their lives to something, having been born again by finding a purpose that removes them from the existential vacuum. They find it their own way, turning into experts in sake, Japan’s traditional drink. But they are something more than connoisseurs: they are evangelists of the rice-based drink, and go around spreading the holy word and gaining devotees as though it were a true crusade. Because they understand that sake is not just a drink: it’s a way of existing, of relating with others; it’s ritual, communion, work and passion. And their lives revolve around it. CM
