Due to the economic recession, the orchestra is shut down. The members hear later that the orchestra will be reformed. Only some of the members, who have not yet been rehired, gather for the orchestra. For the first time since they disbanded the orchestra plays together, but they sound horrible. At that time, the conductor Tetsusaburo Tendou (Toshiyuki Nishida) appears in front of them. The orchestra members are not familiar with Tetsusaburo Tendou's background or career. At first, the members of the orchestra are resistant to Tetsusaburo Tendou. They change though as they are brought into Tetsusaburo Tendou’s unprecedented world of music. Except for the concertmaster Shinichi Kousaka (Tori Matsuzaka), the members of the orchestra, who all have their own wounds and frustrations, recover their confidence.
