Synopsis

I thought that making my dream a reality would make you happy…

Nagata, a young man confronting the world through the theater, and Saki, the young woman whose desire it is to offer him moral support. They meet in Tokyo, where they’ve both arrived from elsewhere, dreams in tow.

Nagata serves as playwright-director for Oroka, a theater troupe that he founded with a friend from junior high school. But his avant-garde style is panned by the critics with each performance, and with attendance stagnating, the other members turn their backs on him. The reality of his disbanded troupe, and his idealistic views towards the theater… Caught in the middle, the anguished Nagata is filled with an indescribable loneliness.

Then one day, Nagata sees Saki, a young woman wearing the same sneakers as him, and calls out to her.

Speaking to a stranger in an aggressive way that’s new even to himself.

Taken aback by this sudden interaction, but unable to walk off when she notices how strangely Nagata is acting, Saki ends up going to a café with him. This is the start of the romance between Saki, an aspiring actress whose dreams brought her to Tokyo, where she studies fashion design at college, and Nagata.

Broke, Nagata crashes with Saki; they soon start living together. As if layering her own dream over his, Saki steadfastly supports Nagata, while Nagata, though caring deeply for this girl who understands and supports him, finds himself becoming more and more consumed in his writing as he tries to bridge the chasm between his ideals and his reality…

To go see the person you want to be with the most. I wonder why I could never do an ordinary thing like that?
