    In the late 80s in Shizuoka, nerdy college student Suzuki meets and falls in love with perky dental hygienist Mayuko, and their romance changes him for the better. Later, Suzuki moves to Tokyo for work, and the two begin to drift apart as he grows closer with a pretty colleague. Blockbuster filmmaker Tsutsumi Yukihiko’s (20th Century Boys series) adaptation of Inui Kurumi’s bestselling novel may sound like your typical romantic drama about first love and loss but it is actually an intricate mystery, culminating in a final five minutes that redefines everything that came before.
