Haru is a college student ignored by her boyfriend yet believes she is still in love with him. One day at a café, Haru meets Riko, a medical artist (prosthetist) who creates body parts in order to disguise clients’ missing pieces, lost due to accident or disease. Both were alone, but struck up an immediate friendship and closeness. Riko doesn't care about gender when it comes to relationships, and believes that love itself is the most important thing a human can achieve. Haru struggles in her life between friendship and a deeper relationship with Riko.
What do we need to find to fill our emptiness? Through two completely different girls, Haru and Riko, this film will give you a clue to find the answer for yourself.
“The moon is full only once a month. Every other day, it's fragmented. But the crescent moon's also beautiful.”
