Tamahiko Shima is the youngest son of the powerful and wealthy Shima family. Blessed with great happiness from childhood, he unwittingly grew up more than the affections of his often distant family. After Tamahiko lost his mother in an accident and paralyzed his dominant arm, he fell into deep despair and was rejected by his own father because of his disability.

Condemned to live in isolation in the countryside where his family's name would not be ashamed, he gave up on dying alone until one day a young woman named Yuzuki Tachibana appeared on his doorstep and announced that Tamahiko's father had closed her sent to his girlfriend. While taking care of Tamahiko, Yuzuki brings a sense of spring into Tamahiko's sad life and enables her to gradually heal from the deep emotional scars of her youth. Their lives slowly intertwine when Tamahiko and Yuzuki taste the fruits of their first love.
