This is a beautiful story of a sick and grumpy 94-year old Jiji and his new furry yellow friend Kinako. Jiji was already a bit of a grumpy man but 64 years after the war has ended poor Jiji was sent to the hospital and the doctors said he was very sick. That was the moment when once an outgoing man has become grumpier than ever losing his interest in life. Around that time his granddaughter Akiko who is a documentary photographer brought a new furry friend into their lives and an extraordinary friendship was born. Jiji and Kinako have bonded since then so strongly that they’re starting to act like each other. The heart of old Jiji is now warm and young again and there is a smile on his face each day since he met Kinako.
It’s time to play!
