Summary
"Middle-aged businessman Hiroshi Nakahara has been catapulted back into his life as a 14 year-old but with all his adult memories and knowledge intact. As he settles into his past in a way that only someone who has seen the future can, he experiences again the friendship, the exhilaration and the love of youth. But subtle changes occur in his history and, as the summer break reaches its conclusion, he starts to ask himself 'What can I do to stop my father leaving?'"

Summary
48-year-old business traveler, Hiroshi Nakahara, accidentally boards the wrong train one morning and gets off at his old hometown. He commences a stroll through town, visiting various childhood locales. However, upon visiting his mother’s grave, he is magically transported back in time to find himself 14 years old, armed with full foreknowledge of events to come. -- Description by Julia Thompson
