The Scarecrows

Original Work

Set against the backdrop of an isolated society challenged by ageing communities and rural depopulation, Route 439 is the story of a dying Japanese village and its struggle for survival as the remaining 27 residents use peculiar methods of re-population to save the village from fading into the landscape forever.
