If you could travel back to any time, when would you go back to? This movie makes that possible.

The director has directed these films in the past The Blue Sky (Keiko Matsuzaka, Kazuki Namioka), The House Lit By The Morning Sunrise (Taro Yamamoto, Issei Ishida), The Sunflower Hill: The Summer of 1983 (Takako Tokiwa). Takafumi Ota brings his audience to tears every time. This film is expected to be the most touching film of the year. 

Miyuki, in her thirties, works in an office and lives in a rural area. Ever since her younger brother passed away in a car accident, her family has fallen apart. Her father's company went bankrupt and becomes an alcoholic. Her mother is in the hospital. Miyuki is working to support both of her parents and is in despair that nothing will work out. But one day, she time travels while she crosses a bridge that is said to make wishes come true. She goes back to 1989, when the economic bubble is at it's largest, also the year her brother died. She meets her young parents, her healthy brother and the younger Miyuki in high school, filled with hope. If Miyuki can save her brother, her family might have a bright future. But this happy future doesn't come at an easy price.
