His desperate situation gradually changes when he finds true love with Yumiko, who always stands by him. To protect the love that he has finally found, Naoki begins writing a letter to Takeshi – The touching story of a man who was powerless against his irreversible fate, but still tried to overcome it in the quest for his dream.
