[ Story ]
A drama conceived and written by Gospel director Matsunaga Daishi, who took his inspiration from the sickbed diary of manga creator Tezuka Osamu. Noda Yojiro of the rock band Radwimps makes his acting debut in the lead role of a young man with terminal cancer.
Hiroshi (Noda) has given up on his dream of becoming a painter, and makes ends meet by working part-time as a window cleaner. One day, he collapses on the job, and is told by a doctor that he has only three months left to live. After immediately admitting himself to hospital, Hiroshi meets a bold high school girl named Mai (Sugisaki Hana), and his interaction with her leads him to come to terms with his own life and death.
