Synopsis of "Shikioriori"

The theme of "Shikioriori" is "food, clothing, shelter". The stage is three major cities in China. If you have not watch the preview video yet, please watch it.

 Also, this anime movie is split into a trilogy as if "5 Centimeters per Second".

Since it is divided into trilogy, I will introduce the plot in three. By the way, when you watch "Shikioriori" you will want to watch "5 Centimeters per Second". You can see well that Lee Haolin loves "5 Centimeters per Second". Also, I did not watch the movie in English, I watched the movie in Japanese, so I'm not sure the title is exactly correct or not.
