After being deserted by her parents, 11-year old Miyori shuts her heart from the rest of the world and denies any form of human relationships.

Miyori soon encounters unbelievable things and gradually realizes that the forest is more than what it seems…

Based on a manga by Oda Hideji, this film tackles in a creative way the problems of environmental destruction in Japan.
