Haruko’s “family” is a little different from the others. She is a single mother and lives with her son Riku, her friend Meiko and Meiko’s boyfriend Sorao. One day, she receives a text message from her old friend, the now famous influencer Tomoko, asking Haruko to authorize her 17-year-old daughter Yuko to participate in her summer art school program. And so begins a summer of self-discovery for young Yuko, caught between trying to live up to her famous and stylish mother’s legacy and discovering her own path.
