Senior year is a tumultuous time in every student's life, filled with tearful ends, and fresh beginnings. With their final year of high school underway, small-town girl Toko Fukami and her friends are about to be thrown into the real world. Where most graduates are ready to leave their lives behind and blaze their own trails, Toko has always had just one dream: to take over her family-run glassmaking business. But the arrival of unusual transfer student Kakeru Okikura shatters Toko's formerly rose-colored life, when he begins to claim that he can hear a voice that predicts the future. And this voice has led him to none other than Toko! Kakeru's arrival will not only change Toko's life, but the lives of her friends as well, and something once broken, can never be perfect again.
GLASSLIP will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow
