Where the hell is Kirishima? The school's star athlete and all-around golden boy, he's decided to drop out of the volleyball team and now no one can find him. This film is a careful examination of all the power struggles, class warfare, social angst and general life drama of an entire high school as seen through the lens of Kirishima's absence.
