    • Toru Nagamine (Kenichi Matsuyama) was raised by a strict father (Kaoru Kobayashi) who ran “Sumire Cottage” in the Tateyama mountains. As if to flee from anything to do with his father, Toru chooses to pursue a career in the corporate world of finance as soon as he becomes an adult.
      But one day, he receives news of his father’s death. Returning to his home in the mountains, Toru is welcomed by his bravely cheerful mother (Fumi Dan), her protective neighbors and an unfamiliar young girl, Ai Takazawa. (Yu Aoi) The emotionally scarred Ai had been rescued by Toru’s father in a mountain accident.
      Touched by his father’s wishes, Toru decides to leave his life in the city and run Sumire Cottage. As Toru struggles to adjust to harsh mountain life, a man named Goro (Etsushi Toyokawa) appears, claiming to be a friend of his father. Inspired by world traveler Goro’s attitude towards nature and Ai’s genuine smile, Toru finally begins to embrace his new life.
