    • Synopsis
    • When a young nurse Ayaka fell off from her window, she becomes paralyzed from waist down. Sudden loss of mobility turns her sour and cold, and she begins to take it out on her mother and everyone around her. Eventually, her room-mates and e-mail correspondence with her grandmother encourage her to open up. When she was choosing a wheelchair, she decided to make it red; just like the color of the mango her grandmother grows. However, just as she was beginning to see hope, one visit pushes her back to the depth of despair. Just as she was about to end it all, a rock-musician in a wheel chair named Shota saves her. With beautiful landscape of Kagoshima, Ayaka slowly turns her life around for good!
