Woman of Water is set in and around a public bathhouse in rural Japan run by Ryo (UA), whose name means "cool, clear water," and her elderly father. All the major events in her life are accompanied by rainfall, most significantly the day that both her father and boyfriend die in separate incidents during an unrelenting downpour. Now alone, Ryo must run the bathhouse herself and come to grips with her strange powers. One day she meets Yusaku (Tadanobu Asano), a young man obsessed with fire, whom she hires to stoke the bathhouse's furnace. A symbiotic relationship soon develops between these two personifications of opposing natural forces. ~ Tom Vick, Rovi
