A beautiful, gentle, and cruel story about a boy who lives alone in a castle and a wandering girl.
A young boy lived alone in a large castle on top of a hill. There used to be a lot of people living in the castle. Then, one day, suddenly, they all disappeared.
One autumn night, a group of vagabonds (Romany) who live by performing tricks came to the castle garden where the lonely boy lived. Mistakenly believing that the castle was uninhabited, they set up many tents and began to play lively music. The boy, however, had no intention of appearing in front of them. However, when he sees a Romany girl practicing dancing late at night, a certain feeling flares up in his heart. What is it?
It is a story of eternal love between a mysterious boy who is tied to a single place and a wandering girl.
