Yukito is a traveling performer-- a wanderer. He survives with only the clothes on his back, a puppet, and a story from his mother-- the story of "The Girl in the Sky." He doesn't know who or where she is, only that he must find her. On the verge of starvation, he is befriended by a young misfit named Misuzu, whose eccentricities serve to hide a troubled home life. Misuzu offers Yukito a place to stay, and in return he listens to her dreams-- dreams in which she lives in the sky. To make ends meet, Yukito takes odd jobs from the local doctor, where he meets Kano, who has her own interesting story. As his search moves forward, Yukito finds that the possibilities are as numerous as the pitfalls. Will he find the girl in the sky? Does she even exist? The answers change with the breeze.
