A junior high school girl living in a small town doesn't have any self-confidence. She can't say what is on her mind at school or at home due to concern about what people will say. She doesn't fit in and constantly feels lonely. But she has 1 prized possession. It is the promotional flyer for a movie featuring a certain foreign actor. In grade school she happened to see one of his movies and was captivated by his lonely and somehow sorrowful demeanor. She will certainly never meet him, but his very existence gradually helps her relish life.
