This film spans the years of 1996 to 2006.
It begins in the year 2005 when Sae is traveling to her birthplace of Nova Scotia in Canada. On the bus, she looks at a photo, and the scene immediately goes back to 1996. Sae and Kouhei met on a train ride to their respective collage entrance examinations. The train hit a deer, causing Sae to worry about being late for the examinations. They went to a nearby house to ask if the owners could give them a lift. Sae spotted a key in the truck parked at the porch. She request Kouhei to "borrow" the truck to send her to the examinations. However, when Kouhei tried to overtake a slow cow truck, he narrowly avoided an incoming crane, but went out of the road and stopped in a ditch. They were brought to a police station and Sae was disqualified from her examinations.
Sae worked hard to get into university while Kouhei always supports her. However, he had mixed feelings about her going to Tokyo, because that would mean that they will be separated from each other. Hence, when Sae managed to get into Waseda University, Kouhei at first refused to see her off. However, after his friends' urging, they got onto a boat and chased after Sae, and when they saw her, they rolled out a banner reading, "Good Luck Sae!".
At Waseda University, Sae met Kitami, a senior who likes taking pictures of children. He helps Sae find a night job teaching English at a cram school and became good friends with her. Hence, when Kouhei visited Sae in Tokyo, upon seeing Sae and Kitami talking together, Kouhei got jealous. During the dinner date with Sae, Kouhei refused to eat anything and stormed out of the restaurant. On his way, a group of delinquent youths knocked down a box that contained Kouhei's present for Sae, and mocked him. A fight ensured, and Kouhei got injured. Sae brought Kouhei back to her apartment, where they made up together again. Kouhei then gives Sae the ship, which was similar to the one Kouhei was on when sent off Sae. Sae worries that their relationship will not last longer.
