[ Story ]

A coming-of-age drama that won both the Montgolfiere d'or (Best Film Award) and Prix du Jury Jeune (Young Jury Award) at the Nantes Three Continents Festival in 2013. Its star is Nikaido Fumi, who became the first Japanese recipient (along with Sometani Shota) of the Venice Film Festival's Marcello Mastroiani Award for Best New Talent in 2011. Fukada Koji (hospitalite) directs.
After failing her university entrance exam, Sakuko (Nikaido) is invited by her aunt Mikie (Tsuruta Mayu) to go on vacation to a seaside town. During her two-week stay, she gets to know Takashi (Taiga), the nephew of Mikie's childhood friend Ukichi (Furutachi Kanji), and develops an attraction to him.
