Dawning Stone

Dawning Stone

Director: Yui Kiyohara, Michiru Tobita

Kako's mother has been missing for three months. She is reunited with her childhood friend Mitsuko at an eerie swamp where masses of dead fish are washed up. Kako neither works nor goes to school, and Mitsuko has just started summer vacation. The two amuse themselves by puttering around idly like they used to do when they were kids in places such as the swamp, the library, the woods, and an abandoned building they call "the temple." Meanwhile, even as Kako shuts herself up in her mother's room, her mother is no longer tangible to her, so she decides to carry out a certain act with Mitsuko's help.
