Threads of Our Hearts

Since he was a child, Akito has been the ears and voice of his mother, Reiko. Reiko, who was born deaf, dreams her son will become a professional pianist. One day, Akito meets Izumi, a deaf girl in a street band. He is attracted to her positive nature but Reiko disapproves, fearing Izumi will hinder his success in 'a world with sound.' Gradually, Reiko's high expectation and tyrannical behavior have become a burden on him.
