Aspiring journalist Yuko works on a television report about a double suicide caused by a teacher-student relationship. When she finds out that her father too has an affair with a student, she is forced to question her principles as a journalist. Using an almost documentary-like approach, A BALANCE unfolds a complex drama about morality and truth.
