UCLA Perloff Hall Decafe, Room 130 Film Screening: WONDERFUL WORLD END
17 year old girl Shiori is an aspiring model. She is an inspiration for her 12-year-old fan Ayumi, who's just run away from home. Shiori is busy broadcasting herself on TwitCasting, a selfie online video distributing website. Shiori warms up to Ayumi, getting to know that her shy and young fan was always rooting for her. But one day, she introduces Ayumi to her live-in boyfriend Kawashima, never expecting Ayumi would start living with them. Kawashima thinks he is acting the hero, and Shiori decides to leave the apartment, unable to tell him her feelings. With nowhere to go, Shiori takes shelter in the private booth of a “manga cafe”. There, she starts searching up on Ayumi, and finds that Ayumi has a blog. Seeing Ayumi's untainted devotion for her, Shiori starts to develop a confusing crush on her. A relationship starts for the two girls, but it’s not friendship nor a love affair.
