A sheep that has strayed from its flock asks the people in the city, “What is your ideal place?” The shepherd is thinking the same thing as he grazes his animals…This is a documentary film that aims to archive the landscape of the city. We borrowed the format of fiction that welcomed artist INOUE Shinta to the role of “shepherd”. This version arranges on three screens the Nagoya, Shinjuku, and Ogaki versions made by three different directors on the basis of a strict compositional scheme. （H.584）
