The tale of a lonely 14-year-old boy and girl looking for their lost parents.
Ai and Sosuke are childhood friends who live in Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido, in a town where love songs fill the air. They were raised together by Yumi, who protected everyone around her from the world with great love. However, their lives fall apart after Yumi dies suddenly. Ai leaves Sosuke to live with her father in Tokyo, where she meets young delinquents and old homeless people. Through her encounters with people on the fringe of society, Ai remembers Yumi’s great love, and decides to return to Hokkaido alone. However, the Sosuke that awaits her now dresses and acts as Yumi once did. How will they face the loss of a loved one, and how will they live on?
