Jenny is walking along her favorite beach when she finds a bottle washed ashore. Inside is a message from Minoru, a young Japanese boy who invites the person who receives the message to come find him, no matter how long it takes. She’s just a little kid, so there’s not much chance of her heading off to Japan, but the thought remains with her—maybe she was meant to find this bottle. After ten years of waiting and hoping and studying Japanese, she sets out on her journey, only to realize that Minoru is one of the country’s hottest pop idols. Jenny never thought he’d be so easy to find, yet his fame makes him even more impossible to connect with. Has she planned this meeting for years for nothing?
