Ryota and his sister Chinami come to their parents' house every summer to commemorate the tragic death of their eldest brother, who drowned fifteen years ago. The house is suffused in a gloomy atmosphere and everything has remained the same as it was on that day. Within a single summer day, the family drama is slowly revealed. When they all sit at the dinner feast, it becomes clear that grief and animosity bind this family as tightly as love.
