A girl asks to wear a skirt. She asks, “Does this skirt spread to the end of the world?” The girl turns to nature to find answers and asks her animal friends sitting on skirt-shaped trees, flowers, and so on. “Does your skirt spread to the end of the world?” Each answer depicts the dreams and lives that they think of metaphorically like a poem. Inside the various skirt-like shapes, there are also pictures of women who have happily and wonderfully lived their lives in the story. She shares her story with animal friends who she has met in nature. The girl thinks where the skirt will spread to, and draws her own beautiful skirt; spread to the end of the world.
