At school, Fumio (Mitsuteru Nakamura) is good in everything. His cheerful, out-going personality makes him a great favorite with teachers and classmates alike. He is in perfect health and there does not seem to be a single shadow to cloud his life.
Then, oneday, he feels a sudden pain in his shoulder. His parents (Munenori Oyamada and Chiaki Tsukioka) take him to a doctor (Taketoshi Naito) who tells them that their son has bone cancer and must be hospitalized. The parents cannot believe their ears, for Fumio had always been the picture of abounding health.
The whole family with the exception of Fumio is cast into the depths of despair. They wonder why it had to happen to their Fumio and their happy family. The father who recovers first and decides to fight cancer to save his son's life.
The doctor's diagnosis is broken to Fumio gently. The father thinks it is better to tell him the truth than to hold it from him. Stunned at first, Fumio rallies and the long fight with cancer begins. Even after his arm is amputated, he does not lose hope.
For a time, it seems Fumio has conquered the disease by sheer will-power and an unquenchable love of life. He is even able to return to school, but the time comes when he must say goodbye to his beloved family and friends, and end his young life.
