Summary: On September 9th, the day of the Katakai Fireworks Festival, high school student Hana (Mitsuki Tanimura) comes home from the hospital after six months of treatment for leukemia. She then discovers that her older brother Taro (Kengo Kora) has become a hikikomori (social recluse). Taro used to be tender, smart and proud of his younger sister, but now he acts estranged and remains to himself.

Later that evening, Hana attends the Katakai Fireworks Festival and observes the town's youth group happily planning for next year's event. She decides to get Taro involved with the group in an effort to bring him out of his shell. She drags him out of his room and to the youth group office. Unfortunately, Taro is not accepted as a member. Hana, nevertheless, is determined to get Taro back into society and helps him find a part-time job as a paper boy and into the adult meetings for the Katakai Fireworks Festival.

With Hana's help Taro slowly opens up to the world again. Then, with winter approaching, Hana has a relapse with her leukemia. Taro comes to the hospital everyday to visit Hana and soon learns that the Katakai Fireworks Festival is a symbol of happiness for Hana. He then takes the initiative to make her happy and approaches the town's youth group once more for admittance ...
