Chigiri Yamazaki is a divorced single mother who has returned to Tsurugi City with her 11-year-old daughter to care for her ailing father - a famous sword maker whose business has completely faltered. It falls upon Chigiri to keep debt collectors at bay.
Go Imai, a freelance documentary maker, is on a business trip from Tokyo and has decided to stop by this little town of Tsurugi, where he had come to do a story on Chigiri's father 25 years ago. Go reunites with Chigiri and the two begin a love story of epic consequence and passion against the backdrop of bucolic Japan.
