In Silent Visitors, Ayumi, Doitehu and Mike all share the same passion for haikyo. Their visits to these contemporary ruins reveal some aspects of their unique personalities, and at the same time, shines a subdued light on a post-tsunami Japanese society.

Japanese and Dutch subtitles are available for download only in DVD format.
