Looking For My Lost Sunflowers    2014/25min

A story in which a man who has forgotten to lose his dream returns to his hometown,

finds the "seed" of his dream in the past and finds his own way again.



Mr. Murakami who works as a salesman of a pharmaceutical company is busy working day to day.

And, he went out drinking with his boss tonight at the weekend in a pub. The specialty of the Izakaya was "collage books,A collection of messages of graduates ".
Mr. Murakami finds a message on his alma mater's notebook.

"Do the sunflowers bloom in the courtyard this summer still?"

In order to confirm the answer, Mr. Murakami got into the train with drunk momentum!
