Two children meet on the beach in the Strait of Gibraltar. One is the son of a local fisherman. The other is Kai, with bright and curious eyes, who has just arrived from a faraway country: Japan. With them two cultures meet. They share games and customs from Andalusia and Japan without being aware that this will mark their lives forever. An ode to friendship and diversity, simple and profound, with autobiographical elements, impregnated with the luminosity of the south and the delicate balance of Japanese aesthetics.
