TORTOISE AND ME

TORTOISE AND ME

video/52min/color
Director: Mari Kawakita

When she was little, Ayumi had a habit of talking to telephone poles. Now that she is in the upper grade of elementary school, she is still the odd one out in her class. One day, something unexpected happens which causes her to go looking for a tortoise that has gone missing in the neighborhood. She joins forces with a couple of other kids who also don't fit in at school, a knowledgeable science whiz and a boy who loves animals. They keep searching, each contributing knowledge from his and her special interest, but they cannot find the tortoise at all. However, the encounters with the eccentric adults they run into along the way help them to grow up little by little.
