Koji Nanjo has everything a person could possibly want – good looks, wealth, a successful pop career – and yet he is unhappy with his life. After getting utterly drunk one night and collapsing on top of a garbage heap, Koji is rescued by a young man who takes him home with him. This young man is Takuto Izumi, a boy with a tragic past and a dream to become a professional soccer player. Overwhelmed by Izumi’s show of kindness and his passion to better his situation, Koji finds himself falling in love with the youth; however, Izumi is intimidated by Koji’s self-destructive nature and is reluctant to return any romantic feelings. Can Koji convince Izumi that they are meant to be or will his insecurities only end up driving them apart?
