In the western Japanese town of Hama, young Shuji (pop musician Yuya Tegoshi) is content to live in the shadow of his over-achieving older brother, Shuichi. At a nearby church the pair discovers what they believe to be the criminal past of Father Yuichi (Etsushi Toyokawa), who narrates proceedings. Meanwhile, Shuji becomes friends with defiant loner classmate Eri (Hanae Kan), orphaned after the suicide of her parents.
Against the backdrop of a doomed resort development in the town, Shuichi's behavior becomes increasingly violent and he turns to arson. When their parents disappear and Shuichi is sent to prison, Father Yuichi attempts to keep the siblings in touch with each other. Meanwhile, Eri's family moves to Tokyo.
Following a failed suicide attempt, Shuji embarks on a pilgrimage to find Eri. Along the way he hooks up with moll Akane (Miki Nakatani). This results in a nightmarish encounter with gangster Nitta (Ren Osugi).
