In a small rural town, FUKUI, there is a painter who loved by local dwellers. His unique style of color usage was affected from the person who met at the painter's time of a junior high school student. The person was a homeless who lived under a bridge. Instead of words, Painting played the role of their communicational language; two persons reached out to understanding each other beyond their generation, even though it was a momentary.
