An invisible wall, a kindness unseen…
When Gon, a playful orphaned fox,
finds that young Hyoju has lost his mother,
he tries to comfort him and make amends
for his own earlier mischiefs
by secretly bringing small gifts
to the boy every day.
But Hyoju doesn't realize
who is behind the anonymous gifts,
and the two are headed for a heartbreaking climax.
