After her father died, Hatsumi has settled with her mother, a lawyer, in a provincial town. She enjoys training and running with her friend Mari. As she rejects her mother, she often feels lonely in her new life.
She meets Ryutaro who works in a recycling center. Day after day, they become closer. One evening, Ryutaro sexually assaults the young girl in the most incomprehensible way. After this rape, the two youngsters are not allowed to meet anymore. Attempts at mediation take place, in order to have the aggressor and the victim meet out of judicial proceeding. Hatsumi suffers; she is heartbroken and has a confused mind. She cannot forgive Hatsumi, while, at the same time, she is still in love with him. Torn between contradictory feelings, Hatsumi takes a surprising decision for her future.
