[ Story ]

The odd meeting between a young girl in search of a mysterious treasure and a homeless man unfolds in monochromatic imagery in this drama. At the helm is Anshul Chauhan, an Indian director presently residing in Japan who garnered attention at domestic and foreign film festivals for his feature film debut, Bad Poetry Tokyo.
High schooler Sora (Marui Wan) retraces the diary her grandfather wrote during the Second World War and begins a search for a treasure. Around the same time, a homeless man (Mase Hidemasa) wordlessly walking backwards strays into the town Sora resides.
