Kohei’s older brother died a few months ago, leaving his father depressed over the prospect that, with Kohei reluctant to become a farmer, no one will take over the family farm. On a track team, he always starts his sprint late and never gives his all, repeatedly finishing in second place. One day, he is surprised to see a painting in the school hall of him running naked.

The script for this film, honestly exploring the problems young people must face in rural Japan, was selected for the 16th Kido Prize, an important award given to aspiring screenwriters
