A Branch of a Pine Is Tied up


The twins separated by Tsunami. The snow globe connects the present and the past. While going back and forth between the present and past, the dead twin girl gets her memories back. The moon overlaps the sun and the past connects to the reality.  The rabbit lead the girl remembers all her memory to the land of the dead.
