Where Are You Going? Tokyo

Amazing responses from strangers in Japan to one simple question - Where are you going?

An interrupted journey is like a portal into somebody else’s life. Catherine Carr invites strangers to pause on their way from A to B and asks them one simple question: ‘Where Are You Going?’. The conversations which follow reveal what really keeps people awake at night. Stories of love and loss, regret, ambition and joy. The encounters are fleeting but always disarming. Some are simply extraordinary.

In this programme Catherine heads to Tokyo and meets a professional pick up artists of Shibuya, an ageing, peace-seeking anarchist, and a couple who love to dress identically in public. These brief portraits have been woven together with the sounds of the city, to create an unpredictable and poetic listen.
