    • Synopsis
    • Momo is a young girl who grew up in a big city.
      However, following the premature loss of her father, she has to move with her mother to the old family house on a remote island. Here, time seems to have stopped: old wooden buildings, holy shrines surrounded by trees, terraced fields painstakingly carved out from steep hills... and no shopping mall.
      Needless to say, Momo is not too overenthusiastic about this new habitat.
      Most of all, her heart is still feeling uneasy about an unfinished letter her father left behind. A letter that contained only two words: “Dear Momo.”
      What was dad going to say?
      One day, exploring the attic of her new big house, Momo finds an antiquet book.
      And from that moment, strange happenings start occurring all around her...
