The stuff of dreams is a cloudy haze - that is, until one comes true. Take a trip up north for a series of stories from six women and their trials of love, loss and life in Hokkaido.
Kyoko is an aspiring young filmmaker. To create compelling stories and capture them in an engaging way has become her only goal in life. It is her passion - and she will stop at nothing to make it happen.
In pursuit of her dream, she spends her college days obsessed with her craft and neglecting everything else around her. As her intensity for directing grows, so does the rift between Kyoko and her closest friends and colleagues. She has begun to lose her touch for the intimate world around her; unfortunately, that is exactly where a true master of cinema draws their inspiration.
Suomi was born to be on the ice. Graceful and strong, she always commanded her skates to glide with delicate ease. As children, she and her friend Hanna often dreamed of winning tournaments and sharing medals when they grew up. But that was a long time ago. Suomi's star has faded and she and Hanna are no longer friends. Life has moved on - leaving Suomi's dreams behind.
When it appears that Suomi may get the chance to perform again, a flood of memories take her back to her humble beginnings, to her once wonderful friend Hanna, and to a promise made long ago.
