On the opening day of the Kyushu Shinkansen line, the Tsubame will head south from Hakata while the Sakura will head north from Kagoshima. If you stand at the exact spot where these two trains pass each other, it is said your wish will come true. Sixth grader Koichi hears this rumor and wants to bring about a miracle of his own. His younger brother lives far away, and Koichi wants them to be together as one family again. Since their parents are divorced. Koichi lives with his mother and grandparents in Kagoshima, while his brother and father live in Fukuoka. The brothers make a grand and crazy plan involving their friends, parents and the people around them, and it is this plan that will bring a miracle to all.
