[ Story ]

Kei (Kashii Yu), Kyoko (Maeda Aki) and Nozomi (Sekine Shiori) form a rock band for their last ever school festival, but then the problems begin. Three days before the school festival, their band splits up when the guitarist breaks her fingers and the vocalist storms out. Then, suddenly they hear 'Linda, Linda', the famous song by legendary Japanese band, The Blue Hearts, and they decide to do a cover version. They pounce on a Korean student, Son (Bae Doona), who just happens to be walking by and persuade her to join the group as their replacement vocalist. They start to rehearse, but show little improvement in the limited time and space with which they have to prepare. However, the three days they spend rehearsing are the best days of their lives. On the day of the performance, they are all so worn out that they almost miss the show, but when they burst onto the stage, a wildly enthusiastic audience awaits their triumphant debut.
Directed by newcomer Yamashita Nobuhiro, the director of Riarizumu no Yado (Ramblers).
