From the director of "Cheburashka" (2010) comes an adventure story of a lone girl Chieri and her only friend Cherry - a stuffed animal - for the big screen! Director Makoto Nakamura teams up with the master of Russian animation Leonid Shvartsman (original "Cheburashka" (1969)) for this exciting yet heartwarming story of a girl who overcomes her fear and finds the light in life.
The only friend Chieri has is a stuffed animal Cherry; it talks and plays with Chieri, and helps her go through the life in place of her late father. When she visits the grandmother's house for the father's memorial, they find a stray dog giving birth to puppies, but a mean crow and strange monster come trying to get the baby dogs. Can Chieri and Cherry save their lives?
