Book: The Miracles of the Namiya General Store - Keigo Higashino

The Miracles of the Namiya General Store is a sci-fi novel written by a Japanese writer, Keigo Higashino and was adapted to a movie directed by Ryuichi Hiroki.

A general store that gives advices turning magical one night. The timelines of the store switched. Three young men who accidentally got into the store received letters asking for advices from the past and decided to reply them. People who sent the letters got the advices from the future. In the end, the three young men realized that every story of the one who sent the letters was connected with them. The last letter they received which was from the owner of the store from the past changed their decision as well as lives.

I used three circles with different colors and motion to represent the interaction and relationships between three different timelines as described in the novel. Eventually, the characters in different timelines connected and time continues flowing.
