New year, new country, new school. Haru has a lot to adjust to in Canada let alone figuring out how to make new friends while still missing the ones she left behind in Japan. When Haru learns about her weird classmate Frances who doesn’t often appear at school, she wonders more about this mysterious person. ’Haru's New Year' is a short film about isolation, solitude, and hope in a new land.
