With her dream of becoming a singer broken, Futaba returns to her hometown. She has a strange experience with a woman at the station.
The moment she begins to take a drink of rosehip tea at the café on her return, the scenery melts away and she sees an unfamiliar family in front of her...
This film depicts the rebirth of a woman that had lost sight of herself. Past and future, dreams and reality. A fantasy that goes back and forth between these spaces.


Set in Shizukuishi, Iwate and Kakunodate, Akita.
One of a 6-part omnibus of films from the 6 prefectures of Tohoku around the theme of bonds.
