Summer is drawing to a close, the trees are full of ripe fruit, and a brisk autumn wind is stirring. A man gives his grandson a kite, awakening the dream of flying among the clouds. As the grandfather grows weaker, the wind carries him into the sky. Winter subsides, spring comes, and a warm gust of wind enables a memorable reunion and an unforgettable adventure together among the clouds.
