Yuki is 9 and has spent her entire life in France
with her French father and Japanese mother.
Suddenly, she is told that her parents are getting divorced and has no more than a few weeks to move to Japan with her mother, leaving everything behind in Paris, beginning with her best friend, Nina.
Nina, who lives with her divorced mother, helps Yuki write a letter in the name of the Love Fairy to implore her parents to think twice.
Finally, running away seems the only solution.
Their new destination is the forest.
