The story centers on the relationship between Tsuneo and Josee. Tsuneo is a university student, and Josee is a young girl who has rarely gone out of the house by herself due to her being unable to walk. The two meet when Tsuneo finds Josee's grandmother taking her out for a morning walk.

The film was originally set to premiere last July but was later postponed due to COVID-19. The film is animated by Studio Bones and its Original Soundtrack "Ao no Waltz" (Blue Waltz) is sang by Eve.

Cast includes: Taishi Nakagawa as Tsuneo Suzukawa, a fourth year student at a university in Osaka, Kaya Kiyohara as Josee, a young girl who lives with her grandmother and calls herself "Josee" after her favorite book, Yume Miyamoto as Mai Ninomiya, Tsuneo's underclassman at the same diving shop where he works part-time, Kazuyuki Okitsu as Hayato Matsūra, Tsuneo's friend who shares the same part-time job and age as him, Lynn as Kana Kishimoto, the librarian at the library that Tsuneo and Josee visit together, and Chiemi Matsutera as Chizu Yamamura, Josee's grandmother.

Kotaro Tamura is directing the anime. The director was known to direct anime series such as Noragami, Noragami Aragoto and as an assistant director to anime film Wolf Children. Tanabe published the original story in the 1985 short story collection of the same name and also inspired a live-action film in 2003.
