Before going to bed, she will kiss the red flower for good night. One day, awaking from the midnight, the little girl finds the red flower is missing. By running out of the house immediately and following the leaves, she enters into a wild, unknown forest, where little elves dream to recover the broken land. What she see shall make her realize a different way of love…
