Middle school student Kai ends up in a declining fishing town as a result of his parents' divorce. One day, he’s invited by a classmate to join their band.

This tale of the encounter and separation of a young boy and a young mermaid is composed of careful depictions of life rendered through animation bursting with briskness and energy.
