When Everything Falls Apart, Only Hope Can Keep Us Alive


Onee Chan SS1

You wouldn’t want to be in the shoes of this little girl.

A father who has lost all his money and is deep in debt. A frustrated stepmother who shows no affection. A home and family on the brink of collapse.

But she has one thing that keeps her heart alive with hope.

Her big sister, her onee-chan. The only one who has ever smiled at her, looked at her with affection and laid a loving touch on her.

Somewhere in her heart, she knows that they just need to stick together and one day, everything will be all right.

Her father, fearing the loansharks, abandons her too.

Where is hope when even hope has abandoned you?
