SYNOPSIS

Ao, 12 years-old boy lives with his mother Midori and little sister Kii on Sado island, Japan. He misses his father who has gone missing without a trace. While Midori tries to deal with the losss in her own way, Ao and kii run across the island and scream at the ocean. In the mysterious transfer student Sayoko, who inconspicuously swipes books from a school library, Ao finds a confidant. Few words are needed between two, dreamy children. Together, they feel less alone. The film tells of a tale of dreams, loss and monsters

Ao, seorang bocah 12 tahun tinggal bersama ibunya Midori dan adik perempuannya Kii di Pulau Sado, Jepang. Ia merindukan ayahnya yang telah pergi menghilang tanpa jejak. Sementara Midori berusaha untuk melipur lara dengan caranya sendiri, Ao dan Kii berlari ke ujung pulau dan berteriak pada lautan. Dalam diri seorang siswa pindahan bernama Sayoko, yang diam-diam mencuri buku-buku perpustakaan sekolah, Ao menemukan seseorang yang dapat ia percaya. Sedikit kata yang terucap di antara kedua pemimpi tersebut. Bersama, mereka merasa tidak begitu sendirian. Film ini menceritakan kisah tentang mimpi-mimpi, kehilangan, dan para monster.
