1 Month Like Summer Vacation


Junya is a bike messenger, who is lost after the tragic death of his father. Shintaro is a product designer, who lives with incredible pain from a brain tumor. One day Junya spots Shintaro, on a rooftop ledge. Afraid he’s about to jump, he runs to the roof to find that he is alright.

A few days later the two crash into one another, resulting in Shintaro breaking Junya’s leg. Shintaro feels guilty and visits Junya in the hospital, where the two begin a friendship.

Shintaro promises to design a bike for Junya to ride in the Tour De France and makes Junya promise to go, no matter what.
