Storyline

As a child Takuma is diagnosed with a heart condition that requires care from a cardiologist. He soon becomes friends with his doctors young daughter Mayu while being treated at the hospital. One day Mayu overhears her father saying that Takumas condition is serious enough that he most likely wont live beyond the age of 20. Takuma isn't aware of this himself, however, so at 8-years-old he makes a promise to marry Mayu when they turn 20. Later in life, Takuma becomes aware that he wont be able to keep this promise and he begins distancing himself from Mayu in hopes of protecting her. Written by Anonymous

It is not matter what is like the finish line, it is about the journey.
16 February 2015 | by danhviet1493See all my reviews

This is probably not the film for optimism and hope but it is definitely the best film for love and life. Living is sad with heartbreaks. Even so, if I knew what await me, I would still meet you and fall in love with you. Because knowing you is the best thing I have done.

It does not matter what await me at the finish line, what matters is I have spent my time, life, and love for you.~

The film reflect truthful about a life of a person with heart condition since born, Takuma. Especially, when doctor diagnose that he could not reach his 20. Surprisingly, he does not fear of death. Instead, he is very well- prepared. What he fears lie in people he loves.
