[ Story ]

A heart moving drama in the motif of 'A Dog of Flanders.' It is written by Koyama Kundo, the scriptwriter of Departures (Okuribito) which won an Academy Award in the Best Foreign Language Film category. Set in a small village in the early Showa period, a young boy, Souta (Morimoto Shintaro), lives with his grandfather who works as a charcoal burner. While struggling financially, the pure-hearted Souta enjoys his days with his grandfather, a great landlord's daughter, Sayo (Kuwajima Marino), and his beloved buddy, a puppy named Chibi. Souta dreams of one day becoming a painter. With the eventual death of his grandfather, however, Souta is left alone and is thrown into an even harsher turn of events.
