Meet Tomomi Nomiya, a young tough whose passion for basketball is at the core of his very being. When he gets into a motorcycle accident rendering a girl paralyzed for life, his world is turned on its head. Tomomi quits his team, drops out of school, and struggles to find some kind of resolution to his oppressive feelings of guilt.
