Giovanni is a young school boy who's father is currently working a long ways from home. With his mother ill and in need of help and medicines, Giovanni works both before and after school to help buy the basic necessities for the house. However, since he's always working and is somewhat withdrawn, the rest of the kids at school tease him constantly about the new "otter skin coat" that his father is to bring back for him, amongst other things. The one kid at school who doesn't tease him however, is Campanella; the son of his father's friend. During the evening of the Festival of the Stars, both Giovanni and Campanella find themselves on board a train; this train which will take them to the very edges of the galaxy and possibly beyond.
