One Liter of Tears

15 year old Ikeuchi Aya was an ordinary girl, the daughter of a family who works at a tofu shop, and a soon to be high schooler. However, odd things have been happening to Aya lately. She has been falling down often and walks strange. Her mother, Shioka, takes Aya to see the doctor, and he informs Shioka that Aya has spinocerebellar degenaration, a terrible disease where the cerebellum of the brain gradually deteriorates to the point where the victim cannot walk, speak, write, or eat. A cruel disease, as it does not affect the mind in the least. How will Aya react when told about her disease? And how will Aya live from now on?
10 episodes of the film One Liter of Tears make all of us realize that life is so short to live in but long also if we do not make it meaningful. Aya made everyone think about the meaning of life. She is so cheerful that make all of people around her forget what kind of disease on her. Aya died on 25 years old, but she still alive in her family’s hearts and the people who read her diaries. Aya always do her best, trying till the end of her life. She can’t do many things, but the only thing that she could do is writing, influence so many people. She said that she must write for others or she will do nothing in this life. The only thing that she thought is helping others. Wonderful, lovely, touching film, great job to Erika Sawajiri, you already made one liter of tears of mine.
