Spring of the first year at high school.
Kumiko Oumae who was a member of a brass band at a junior high school visits the brass band with her classmates Hazuki Kato and Sapphire Kawashima. Kumiko happens to see her former classmate Reina Kousaka. Hazuki and Sapphire seem to have decided to join the band, however Kumiko is still hesitating. She recalls what happened with Reina at the brass band competition when she was a junior high school student.
Something precious that the girls pursue through brass band activities.
This is a striking youth story full of struggles and aspirations.
