His partner gives 110% every night, but Yuya’s sloppy dancing and downright hostile attitude towards the public makes fans hate him and his agent looks for an excuse to let him go. The career of a pop idol just isn’t the easy leisure path Yuya expected…
After a particularly lackluster concert appearance, Yuya meets a girl backstage. All she expects from life is to perform. There’s just one problem: she’s been dead for a year.
