Two schoolgirls, Emi and Yuka, form a friendship strengthened by their disabilities that their classmates can neither understand nor share. Years on, Emi recalls her unique relationship with Yuka to Nakahara, a photojournalist. A departure from the director’s previous work, this is a heart-warming tale about how a childhood friendship can last a lifetime.

子供たちの心の機微を繊細に綴るベストセラー作家、重松清の短編集を映画化。物語に登場するのは、交通事故に遭い足が不自由になった恵美と、病弱なために学校を休みがちな由香、そして「みんな」。学校から孤立した2人の絆を中心として、恋人ができた途端に冷たくなった親友に悩む少女や、どうしても自分に自信が持てない少年などが物語を紡いでいく。
