Yuko, the third grade of high school, is living with her divorced mother. Indecisive about her future, she submits a blank form about her college plans. As punishment, she is ordered by her mother to help her deliver evening meals to the elderly during her summer vacation. She meets a stubborn old man named Gansan whom she does not like at first, but gradually opens up to. She finds out he was once a skillful engineer of a famous ship building company, and now he paints to relieve his loneliness. Yuko arranges for him to meet his estranged son in a bid to bring him happiness, but the two cannot get along. Yuko does not know that Gansan's days are numbered because of a chronic heart disease.
