Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
High-school student Taro (Hideo Sakai) has had the bad luck to break a leg just before his summer vacation can begin. He lives in a part of northeastern Japan that is very rural. Most of the time, he recuperates at home in his room. The window to his room is immediately adjacent to the window of Yoko (Yukako Shimuzo), a girl who is about his same age. Because he is around so often, she finds plenty of occasions to talk to him through their open windows, and they form a friendly relationship. Yoko manages to tease Taro out of the depression he has fallen into, and the two youngsters experience their first puppy-love with each other.
