Naive but self-confident, 18-year-old Yonosuke (Kengo Kora) arrives in Tokyo to begin life as a student in 1987. Taking pleasure in life’s simple things, Yonosuke touches everyone he meets. Decades later, his friends’ stories paint a picture of Yonosuke’s life, and his whereabouts today. Little do they know of the selfless tragedy that has befallen their ‘ordinary’ friend.
