    Brief synopsis

    A war is raging, nowadays. A boy loses his home in an air raid. Disoriented, he is now fleeing with his bike as his only possession through an increasingly disrupted world. The people he meets and tries to connect with mirror his own search for the right path, even though there is no destination.
