Are the woes of the present meant to be endured for the promise of a better future or to atone for past wrongs? In a captivating epic of love, fate and faith, seven young people must struggle with this spiritual puzzle as their alien past lives threaten the future.
Driven by secrecy and the memories of the moon base's socially dissonant engineer Shion, young Rin has fled from home to find unexpected allies amongst strangers. On a school trip to Kyoto, the others have met with Mr. Tamura and the reclusive moon dreamer Haruhiko. Finally, they know the shocking truth that Rin is Shion and that Shion was trapped alone on the moon for nine maddening years. All the stress causes the poignant memories of Mokuren to fully awaken within Alice. Once back in Tokyo, Alice's dreams reveal just how tragically difficult it was for Mokuren to grow up as a religious icon.
