The story centers on Arthur (Matthew McConaughey), an American man, and a Japanese man named Takumi (Ken Watanabe) who meet in an area of Japan known as the “Suicide Forest,” where many go to end their own lives. Instead of killing each other, the two men go on a journey of self-reflection through the forest together. Katie Aselton is playing a woman who had an affair with Arthur. Naomi Watts is playing Arthur’s wife Joan.
