In March, Keisuke qualifies for Tokyo University. He is happy and feels a sense of freedom. Mayama Rikako (Takimoto Miori), his girlfriend since high school days, shares in his delight. It was agonising for Keisuke to date Rikako, who has been enjoying university life, while waiting for another chance to enter a university. But he is finally her equal. Well, he may come out ahead … … Keisuke’s father who runs a small factory in the outskirts of Tokyo is overjoyed that Keisuke qualified for Tokyo University. When Keisuke was an elementary school student, the factory ran into financial difficulties. His mother turn her back on his father, got involved with a man and left home. After that, his father rebuilt the factory and raised him single-handedly. Keisuke is so set on Tokyo University because he wants to show the big companies which treated his father badly, his mother who forsook them and also the world what he can do. Indeed. He will lead the life of an elite from now on. On the day of the entrance ceremony in April, a guy appears in front of Keisuke. “I know all about what you did. Shall I tell the police that there was a suspicious-looking exam candidate who arrive late?” Tanaka Hiroshi (Shirota Yu) says. Although Keisuke feigns ignorance, he cannot hide his agitation. “I cannot forgive you.” Hiroshi who was rattled by that bomb warning had failed to qualify for Tokyo University. “I will make you pay for this.” He leaves with a defiant smile. Keisuke feels anxious and terrified beyond. Before long, Hiroshi starts following Keisuke around and demanding money from him. The amount of money increases bit by bit. Keisuke has no choice but to get involved in seedy part-time work. At this rate, he will tumble down rather than crawl his way up. He had believed that if he entered Tokyo University, a rosy future would await him. The happiness he desires is within reach in a different form. He must get hold of the life he wants with these hands again. So Keisuke makes a decision in order to get out of this fear. The outcome is what nobody can foresee.
