A junior high school girl living in a small countryside town visits her big sister, who lives in an apartment on her own. She gets her sister to take her to a rental video store and gets a movie starring the actor she adores. She hears "his" voice for the first time. She becomes enthralled with the world "he" inhabits and devours novels from "his" country, losing herself in unknown worlds. She still feels self-conscious at school and keeps to herself, but one day something unexpected happens.
