In 1967, an American journalist and a Japanese architect rescued an ancient farmhouse found in the snow country of Japan, and their lives were forever changed. Minka is an intimate story about architecture, memory and the meaning of home. Minka is more meditation than history. Filmed just after Roderick's death at ninety-three, it uses this one house as a vessel of memory to explore the power of place and the meanings of home.
