In a gloomy landscape, Akiko watches various worldly elements, like her hand, growing grass and bright lampposts. The beautiful young lady seems to discover everything for the first time.
A hand. A beautiful Asian lady looks at it as if she sees the body part for the first time. She is in a gloomy landscape, on a dark road. She looks at the environment with wonder. With admiration, too. Attentively, she watches a blade of grass. Grass grows visibly around her and the wind starts blowing. Bright lights switch on. A clock ticks. The world knocks. But it turns out to be less pure than Akiko had expected.
