Sanpo (n.) A Walk. Michi (n.) A path. 
STORY – A Path walked regularly, habitually, thoughtfully. It is the story of two women, Hiroko & Yumi living their lives in a Tokyo apartment, as they have done for decades. Yumi is a middle-aged mouse, slightly frenzied in her caring for Hiroko, her mother, a methodical, slightly stubborn mouse.
Sanpomichi is inspired by Japan and the music of Yuzo Kayama. 
The story has shades of a functional Grey Gardens, with elements of Richard Scarry and Fantastic Mr. Fox, but it is truly a unique film, that promises to delight in a quiet, lingering way. 
Sanpomichi Teaser released on 8/08/2013
