Synopsis

Tsuneo is a university student with dreams of diving abroad. While out walking one day, he gets a job assisting Josee, an artist whose imagination takes her far beyond her wheelchair. But when the tide turns against them, they push each other to places they never thought possible and inspire a love fit for a storybook. A gorgeously animated and effortlessly charming melodramatic animated feature based on a short story and young adult novel of the same name by Seiko Tanabehe.
