RAINBOW SONG

SYNOPSIS

One day Tomoya, an incompetent but well-meaning staffer at a TV production company, discovers that his college friend Aoi Sato died in a plane crash in the United States. As he struggles to deal with the devastation, he cannot help but think of their past together, from their first meeting to their final farewell. When they first became friends, a circum-horizontal arc – a rare, flat phenomenon that looks like a rainbow – graced the sky. From failed romances to independent film projects to TV production ambition, Tomoya and Aoi developed a unique relationship. Sometimes, the very thing we search for, we cannot recognize until it is too late...but we can feel lucky knowing that we had something truly special, for a while.
