Despite their vast cultural differences, the two soon become friends connecting on a new level that Kei did not experience with Ai.

As the pair grow closer Ai becomes increasingly jealous of the friendship. Worried that she will lose Kei, Ai begins to make demands, looking for comfort in the security of their relationship. Kei must confront her feelings even if it takes her down path she never knew she wanted.
