Kurumi’s heart was broken by the sudden death of her boyfriend in a tragic airplane accident. Forced to carry on without her beloved Hal, she fell into a reclusive and joyless existence. Kurumi had given up on the world, but a brilliant scientist devised a plan to win her back.
By melding futuristic technology with the binary equivalent of human emotion, they created an ultra-lifelike robotic surrogate to take Hal’s place – and lure Kurumi from her shroud of solitude. Resistant at first, this shattered beauty slowly yielded to her feelings of longing – and took comfort in the company of a robot. Though their unique bond grew stronger with each passing day, Kurumi and Hal would soon discover that nothing about their artificial love story was quite as it seemed.
Contains both DVD and Blu-ray versions of the film in collector’s packaging, with both original Japanese language with subtitles as well as the English dub.

This is a real hidden gem. It's only 60 minutes long, but is encompasses a beautiful story and a brilliant ending. The only reason I'm deducting a star is I wish a couple of the characters were expanded upon - if this were a 90 minute film, that could have been accomplished easily. The art in this film is wonderful too. I bought the Blu-ray/DVD collectors edition, and its a really nice package. Nice little booklet included too. Came in perfect condition from Zavvi as usual. Buy this, you won't regret it!
