Brothers Koichi and Ryunosuke were separated by their parents' divorce. While one lives with the mother, the other stayed with the father hundreds of miles away. They keep in touch, but their biggest wish is to live together in one home again. One day, Koichi hears that all wishes come true at a place where two bullet trains pass each other. With his family's help, Koichi comes up with a plan, and, accompanied by friends, he sets off on a quest for a miracle.
