A twenty-seven-year-old office worker travels to the countryside while reminiscing about her childhood in Tokyo.
The movie is based on a manga series of comic vignettes of a small girl. The scenes in the film portraying Taeko as an adult were created by writer-director Isao Takahata. The adult scenes gave the entire film a plot and connected the original vignettes as recollections of her childhood, making it a cohesive whole.
