One night a boy sets out to observe meteors on his secret hill. But on this night a mysterious old gentleman is also there, and then shooting stars begin raining down on them like a shower. The mysterious man offers an invitation "Come, let’s go higher up in the sky."
The two begin a magical journey going above the clouds and beyond Earth's atmosphere to approach the shooting stars finally reaching high enough to overlook the whole Earth.
