Yuma Takada, a 23-year-old with cerebral palsy, is an imaginative and skilled illustrator desperate to break into manga. After a magazine editor praises her technical ability but critiques her naïve depictions of sex, Yuma embarks on a quest to lose her virginity. Writer-director HIKARI’s heart-warming and humorous debut feature is an enjoyable and loving journey of sexual exploration, personal liberation and self-expression.
