Miyuki is a sophisticated Tokyo girl who has to take her two half-brothers and spend several days in the country with her grandmother. Upon arriving, away from any cell reception or the comforts of modernity, she struggles to understand her grandmother as she performs her daily prayer underneath a rusty wind chime. Genki, a village boy, takes Miyuki to the forest to show her its natural wonders, and as she goes with him she orders her clingy half-brothers not to follow. In order to impress her further, Genki takes her even deeper to a hidden place where an unexploded World War II bomb is found, rusting away between the flowers. Miyuki dares him to remove its arming pin, but soon grows bored with this game. Upon returning to her grandmother, however, she learns of a painful connection between her grandmother's wind chime and the unexploded piece of history.
