Summer is coming to an end, and the fruit is growing ripe on the trees. A grandpa gives his grandson a kite. Then the leaves fall, and grandpa grows weak. A strong autumn wind carries him off into the cloudy sky. Winter comes, then springtime. A warm breeze brings them together again. Told with enchanting, richly-textured images, this tale is about remembering those who are no longer with us.
