[ Story ]

At a rural girl's high school in northern Japan, remedial math classes are being held during the summer break. Looking for a way out, Tomoko (Ueno Juri) and two of her classmates volunteer to deliver lunches left behind by the school's brass band on the way to support the baseball team at a crucial game. However, when the band subsequently suffers a bout of food poisoning, Tomoko and her companions seize the chance to ditch summer school as replacement musicians. Despite a severe lack of talent, they gradually succumb to the infectious rhythms of big band jazz and start to take the music seriously. Just as they are about to perform in public for the first time, the band members they replaced return and the ring-ins are shunted to the sidelines. However, this fails to dampen the girls' newfound spirit, and they take up part-time jobs and practice in the streets to achieve their dream of playing at the school's music festival.
A feel-good youth comedy from director Yaguchi Shinobu (Water Boys), featuring a vibrant cast of new faces as well as seasoned performers including Takenaka Naoto and Watanabe Eriko.
