Synopsis

We all know how snowflakes are made… or do we? This wonderfully whimsical animated tale imagines what happens to water droplets after they emerge from a pool of water and float up into the sky, where they encounter the freezing cold breath of the north wind. Eventually, they will return to land, where all together they adorn Japan’s majestic Mount Fuji with an elegant cap of snow. The water cycle has never seemed so charming!
