Kakeru Aizawa, the manager of an ordinary high school soccer team, believes that he does not have any proficiency in the sport. His brother Suguru is a skilled player, even starring as the ace for the Japanese national team. Although they are on good terms, Kakeru secretly envies his brother's soccer skills. Suguru, however, believes that Kakeru still holds some hidden talent and tries to awaken it.

When an unexpected tragedy strikes, Kakeru is now forced to play soccer while also reuniting with a childhood crush, and he must finally face the scar that has held him back for so many years.
