The story is set in a town in the mountains, the anime will follow high school student Aoi Aioi, an aspiring musician, and her older sister, Akane. Akane gave up her dream of moving to Tokyo with former boyfriend Shinnosuke to take care of her sister after both their parents passed away.

As Aoi tries to break into the music industry, she’s invited to perform at a music festival by a famous enka singer named Dankichi. However, things get complicated when Shinnosuke returns, and a mysterious guy named Shinno also appears.
