Film synopsis: 
Lui the girl lost her sight one year ago by a hit-and-run accident. Since then she lives in shock and refuses to go to rehabilitation facilities. One day Lui meets a wonderful boy, Wataru. Wataru is a high school boy who has great enthusiasm for paragliding. He is dreaming to take off in the ascending air current called “lion” which occurs rarely. Lui is haughty and insolent to Wataru and his friend at first. Little by little, she opens her mind to Wataru after becoming familiar to each other. Wataru helps Lui to get her live back with photo shooting. However, an ironic and cruelty fact is just waiting behind their back. The two young ones now have to face it by their own ways…
