Four-year-old Kun is none too pleased when his new baby sister Mirai (meaning “future”) enters his life. It doesn’t take long for Mirai to win the hearts of the entire family, and Kun’s jealousy only increases as his mother returns to work and his father struggles to run the household. It all comes to a boiling point when Kun storms off into the garden one day, only to run into strange guests from the past and future.
