Plot: Kaoru is a talented young teenager, gifted with a charming voice and a sweet abiity to play the acoustic guitar. She also suffers from a rare skin disease called Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP). People with xeroderma pigmentosum have a defect in the gene that is responsible for repairing cell damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) light. For Kaoru, this means that she must avoid sunlight completely.
Kaoru watches the world from her tinted bedroom window during the days and at night roams around her neighborhood alone. She has never attended school and is incapable of doing a lot of things most teenagers take for granted. She falls in love with a boy named Kouji that doesn’t even know she exist. He often sits at a bus stop in the mornings, that is visible from Kaoru’s window. One day Kaoru see’s Kouji walking down a street at night and she gathers the courage to finally talk to him. Actually, she tackles him from behind and then blurts out her name, her hobbies, favorite fruit, favorite muscian, and the fact that she doesn’t have a boyfriend.

«A Song To The Sun is a sweet little film, that surprisingly doesn’t pack the excessive melodrama one would expect from a film centered around a girl with a debilitating disease. The film seems made particularly for teenage folks and mainstream cinema goers, so stylistically you can expect a film similar to Kentaro Otani’s Nana.»
«Clocking at two hours, the initial pacing is a bit slow when establishing characters and premise, but once that's done, the movie's a breeze. It's an excellent date movie, so guys, take your lady love to this movie, and of course, Yui is opportunity for you to ogle.»
«For general audiences, Taiyou no Uta is great to watch with family or even better, a loved one. Seeing Koji do all he can to fulfill Kaoru's dream will get any couple aroused and heart-warmed. However, for all YUI fans, this spectacular movie contains most of YUI's hottest songs.»
