Story
Takashi lost his eyesight in grade school. Though he can recreate the world in his mind, he is losing interest with fewer things to enjoy. He had a friend, Shinji, who was autistic. One day, Shinji invites him to a steam locomotive ceremony. Due to some reasons, Takashi gets into a fight with Shinji and they become separated. Takashi looks for him, falling into a darker state of mind. With people’s support, Takashi finally finds Shinji at the ceremony. With the train passing by, Shinji’s voice renders him the world one after another. Takashi learns how to enjoy the world with his imagination.
