This film tells the story of a young girl named Asuna who spends her days listening to a mysterious music coming from a crystal radio left by her late father. One day, she is attacked by a monster and subsequently saved by a boy named Shun. But Shun mysteriously
disappears and it’s up to Asuka to find out just what is going on.
