Haru and Leo are two girls who make up the Haru-Leo musical duo. They busk in the streets with guitars and their independent music is organically finding an audience, mostly among young girls to whom the two are becoming idols. While the talented Haru writes lyrics and music, the more attractive Leo with a bad taste in men feels useless and ostracised. Conflicts and struggles well up between the two girls. The film begins as the storyline is approaching its end. Despite their success, they both agree to split. Their roadie Shima is the last bond that keeps them together. They are about to embark to one final tour before finally parting ways. On the road, they return to clubs where they first started and recall the joy of their initial achievements. The film hints at a love triangle, but music is really what it is all about. Both heroines have put their lives into it, and now they are about to leave it.
