After Kentaro’s death, his only daughter Kanae (6) was brought up with care by her grandmother Kaoru (73). One day in August during the Obon (festival of the dead) week, her mother Momoko (39) comes back to Japan with an American man Adam (50) and his son Joseph (10). Momoko is thrilled to see her daughter and suggests her to move to the U.S. and live together with them, but Kanae refuses. Adam tries to open her heart in various ways. Kanae soon begins to show her smile and that day’s dinner became a cheerful one with lots of laughter. However, Momoko still had a sad expression on her face. The next day, Momoko and Adam was at the ocean. Momoko starts to speak about the strange sight she saw at Abraham’s grave.
