The latest film from Naoko Yamada, director of the critically-acclaimed and hugely popular anime feature film A SILENT VOICE


Mizore  Yoroizuka  plays  the  oboe,  and  Nozomi  Kasaki  plays  the  flute  in  Kita  Uji  High  School concert  band.  As  seniors,  this  will  be  their  last  competition  together, and  the  selected  piece  "Liz  and  the Blue  Bird"? features  a  duet  for  the  oboe  and  flute.  By  all  accounts  the  girls  are  best  friends,  but  the  oboe and  flute  duet  sounds  disjointed,  as  if  underscoring  a  growing  distance  between  them.  Talk  of  college creates  a  small  rift  in  their  relationship,  as  the  story  evolves  to  reveal  a  shocking and  emotional conclusion.
