In her final year of middle school, Fu Sawatari is a middle school student who had previously locked away her feelings following the death of her father. She returns home one day to find her brother, Kou, had taken out all the old photos their father had taken. Fu comes to understand the warmth of these photos and takes an interest in photography, asking to use her father's old camera. After taking a few photos, mainly with her friend Chihiro Miyoshi, she sends some to Riho who responds with positive feedback and a train ticket with no destination. After deciding that she'd like to go to high school in Takehara, where her father was brought up, the whole family decides to move there. After saying her goodbyes to Chihiro, Fu travels to Takehara where she meets with Kaoru.
