In video essayist and film critic Kogonada’s debut feature, local girl Casey – an ‘architecture nerd’ – meets visitor Jin in the Midwestern ‘Mecca of Modernism’, Columbus.

Casey (Haley Lu Richardson) lives with her mother in a little-known Midwestern town haunted by the promise of modernism. Jin (John Cho), a visitor from the other side of the world, attends to his dying father. Burdened by the future, they find respite in one another and the architecture that surrounds them.
