MADADAYO follows the last two decades in the life of writer and teacher Uchida, who retires in the war years of the early 1940’s. He is beloved by his students and colleagues who join him each year for a birthday celebration, toasting “Mahda-kai? (Are you ready?)” to which his answer is always “Madadayo!” which means “Not yet!”, acknowledging that death may be near but life goes on – it is both a triumphant denial of death and a gentle plea for more time.
