Kun enjoys a happy childhood until the arrival of his baby sister, Mirai. As she becomes the centre of his parents’ attention, he becomes increasingly jealous and withdraws into himself. Then, suddenly, through a magical family tree, Kun is catapulted into a fantastic world where the past and the present mingle, and he meets his relatives at different ages: his mother as a little girl, his great-grandfather as a young man, and Mirai as a teenager. Through these adventures, Kun is able to discover his own identity.
