Story

Yukito is a travelling performer. He moves through this world with only the clothes on his back, driven onward by the stories of “The Girl in the Sky”. Not knowing when or if he will find her, Yukito wanders, clinging to fleeting hope.

Destitute and near starvation, Yukito's life changes after the eccentric Misuzu offers him food and shelter. This fragile beauty shares his dreams of a life lived amongst the clouds, and Yukito listens closely out of a gratitude which quickly gives way to curiousity.

The unlikely pair grows close, but Yukito cannot escape his destiny, or his past. His need to find "her" is much too strong. Who is the girl in the sky? Does she even exist? The answers twist in the breeze, and the qustions float aimlessly through the air.
