Plot:The story of a family whose 15-year old eldest daughter comes down with an incurable disease (Spinocerebellar Degeneration) but puts up a fierce battle to live while bearing up under her infirmity.

The original work of the same name is a diary that a girl kept after the outbreak of her disease to gain courage in grappling with the illness and including her words of encouragement to her self, her reflections and her words of gratitude that were written until she could no longer hold a pen. The fresh and sensitive texts and poems created a sensation among the reading public in Japan, becoming a best seller with sales of more than 1.1 million copies. Even today, 19 years after it was originally published, it continues to provide the courage to live to many people.
Comments: Believe me, you will cry a lot, but after that some poeple like me will start to think ” I’m so happy that I’m alive, that I’m healthy, that’s all most what I need, I love my family and friends, I’m happy”, but in some way I felt sad for poeple who have this illness now, I was looking for this illness is it still undiscover treatment. I was very sad when I found out that they didn’t. Also I read in forum one human wrote, that him doctor told that he has Spinocerebellar Degeneration. He asked what doctor mean by that, I felt so sorry for him, I hope doctor did mistake, and he lives happily.
