[ Story ]

A drama set in the Kerama archipelago of Okinawa which depicts a female violinist who has arrived from Tokyo and a local girl relating to one another through music. In the director's chair is Shindo Kaze of LOVE/JUICE.
Because of her excellent hearing, Umi (Ito Aoi) suffers headaches even at the slightest variance in musical pitch. She meets Yuko (Ando Sakura), a violinist who has arrived on the Kerama islands for a concert. The two, bearing similarly troubled situations with friends and family, gradually become friends through music.
