I wish

His brother Ryunosuke (10) lives with their father in Hakata, northern Kyushu separated with their parents divorce. A new bullet train line in the region will be inaugurated soon, and Koichi starts to believe a “miracle” will happen the first moment these new bullet trains intersect each other from opposite directions with their highest speed; his only wish is for his family to live together once again. With some help from grown-ups around him, Koichi sets out on a journey struggling lives.
