Film description

Kumiko Yamamura, known as Josee (voice of Kaya Kiyohara – Typhoon Noruda, Switched), is a girl who loves painting and reading books. She is a wheelchair user and lives with her grandmother. Living with her old grandma, Josee never really lived life outside her home. She finally decides to jump out to the curious world outside when she meets Tsuneo Suzukawa (Taishi Nakagawa – Prison School live-action, Kakegurui live-action), a university student studying marine biology.

At first, Josee and Tsuneo don’t get along. However, Josee overcomes her shyness and opens her heart after having many experiences for the first time. The first trip to the beach, the first shopping experience, the first friend with mutual hobbies… Gradually, Josee and Tsuneo develop affection toward each other.
