Chie (Nana Eikura) is a ‘companion’, a young woman hired to speak in a public-relations role at corporate events, who ends up in the wrong auditorium. There she encounters a young salaryman, Taro (Eita).
Their relationship proceeds quickly, and soon Taro is talking of marriage. Chie, however, is hiding something: she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
When chemotherapy causes her hair to fall out, she ends the relationship and moves away. Taro finds her after she has lost a breast to surgery; he insists that she is still the same person she was, and that his feelings have not changed. The two promise they will stay together no matter what happens.
The couple reunites, but then Chie’s cancer comes back. Knowing that she has only a short time to live, Taro, her family, and her friends secretly plan a wedding…
