Director: Yoshinari Nishikori
Starring: Yakushimaru Hiroko
A big Akita Inu dog, covered in long white fur like his ancestors, is looking out from inside a freight train departed from Tokyo. He continues his journey, although he is exhausted and his legs feel as heavy as lead
Ajigasawa in Aomori Prefecture with the Shirakami Mountain Range in its background. The Akita Inu dog appears before Setsuko, a big-time animal lover, who is feeding six other dogs. The dog does not touch any food offered to him, but instead fixes his gaze on a boy.
The boy, Akira, who also loves animals, is always helping Setsuko take care of the animals. In the meantime, Akira and his older sister are also taking care of their mother, who is recovering from a horrible accident in the hospital.
