The film animates the process of cooking with elements of change in nature. So as to highlight the interconnectedness between cuisine and the environment. The components of a Shojin Ryori meal are based on the idea of balance. The rule of five is created between five colors and flavors in a meal; green, yellow, red, black and white as well as sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami. This balance in color and flavor is believed to provide nutritional balance while also bringing the body into balance with the seasons.
