Japan, 2007. After seven years of living in Japan, Takeshi and his brother, Taisei, had already gotten used to the food, their new house and Japanese culture and traditions. Takeshi still needed to work on his accent, since he had a very strong French accent still. Things seemed to be okay at first, but then they started to break apart again. Takeshi´s mother´s new husband was being abusive. Started off with mean words then moved to physical damage towards his mother. This time, however, their mother was stronger, so instead of locking herself in a room with her kids and cry like the first time, this time she immediately got divorced, took her children and moved to a smaller apartment. She considered returning to France but things were hard with money by that time, thus she decided to stay and see what she could do. Takeshi and Taisei started to work to help their mother. Takeshi started to work as a store clerk in a pharmacy along with Taisei. They took shifts and helped cleaning the house constantly. They were fairly happy. They even found a very beautiful waterfall a few miles away from their new apartment with a small cave on the bag where they used to run and play for hours. Until one day things took a turn… Takeshi´s mother suddenly got sick. At first, it was just a cold, but then it got so bad she couldn´t even get up from bed. After a few days, the doctor went to see her… she had a terminal cancer and only a few days of life. She slowly started to loose conscience until she finally passed away. The following months, Takeshi and Taisei focused on working. They even dropped out from school to support each other… But Taisei started to change. He became bitter and cold… even cruel and often pushed Takeshi away every time he tried to get near his brother for support. Takeshi was worried about his brother too and one day the unavoidable happened: Takeshi found Taisei one night laying on the ground with bloody slit wrists. Takeshi screamed and locked himself into depression for months until he found the strength to live his own darkness; He made his brother and mother a promise: He would go on and be strong for them to be proud. He kept on fighting to keep the apartment. The only way he could let out his feelings was walking to the lake in the middle of the night and crying until he passed out on the grass. One night, he was sitting there, staring at the sky, letting tears run down his cheeks and taking deep breaths when he heard someone coming… He looked up and turned his head to look behind himself…
