- The movie is set in a hospital where "strange" people are sent. One of the older, gruffer patients, Onuki, is quite annoyed with the arrival of Paco. She is in the hospital due to a memory disorder- she can only remember the events of one day at a time. Each day she reads a pop-up children's book, and often asks Onuki to read to her. Each day it is a new story for her.
Eventually, the two of them develop a friendship, and Onuki decides to enlist the help of the other people in the hospital to perform a play of the book, hoping it will help Paco.
