At an all female high school, a senior of the radio club becomes fascinated with the club’s newest member. As graduation nears and the summer heat rises, so does the sexual tension between the girls.
With its narrative centered on the burgeoning sexual emotions of Manami, a high school senior who is a member of the school’s broadcast club, we find her struggling to address her feelings towards Chiyuki, the latest member to join the club. Aoi Morikawa, known mostly for her drama roles, makes her film debut her as Manami, a role that suits her ability as an emerging actress relatively well. One can see that the more emotionally driven performance belongs to Mugi Kadowaki though, who plays Chiyuki. Portraying a conflicted individual, Kadowaki delivers an emotionally charging performance that mirrors the frustration that her character experiences as she struggles with her own bisexuality as well as her mutual liking to Manami. Maaya Kondo as Manami’s friend Ai also elicits a very genuine performance as the friend who hides her own attraction to Manami, which leads to a battle of affections between the three as they vie for each other’s attention.
