Koichi is a defiant 12 year-old, recently rescued from the remnants of an Aum-like cult after it launched an act of terrorism. When the boy’s grandfather adopts Koichi’s beloved younger sister, he escapes from child welfare determined to rescue her. A disturbed teenage girl joins his odyssey as they struggle to come to terms with and break free of their traumatic pasts. Both young actors give wrenching performances as youngsters adrift in Japan.
