Takao is an exceptionally mature high school student who dreams of becoming a shoe designer. Skipping school to sketch designs in a rainy garden, he meets a mysterious woman. She offers no name, only a poem as a clue to her identity.

Despite the difference in their ages, an unusual friendship develops between them, as the rain and the unanswered questions and needs in their lives draw them to the garden day after day. The season will soon be over, though, with so much left unsaid between them. Will there be time for Takao and the solitary woman to put their feelings into words?
