The moon was beautiful the night a stranger rang the bell to the sleeping Sasahara’s door. The stranger, seemingly tall enough to reach the Heaven’s, outstretched his hand and offered to take Sasahara to a very, very far away place.

What happens when, along the path to this far away place, she encounters Shimizu? A Nightwalk Faraway is an endearing tale of frailty, strength, and the courage to face our fears.
