JESUS

JESUS

Yura is a young boy whose family leaves Tokyo to live with his grandmother in the snowy countryside. Not only must he fit in at new school, but it’s a Christian one. At first he is puzzled when he and his classmates are called to “worship”, but he gradually adjusts to his new enviroment. One day, in the middle of a prayer, he sees a very small Jesus appear before him. Each wish Yura makes to Jesus comes true, and he starts to have faith in the power of the Lord.
