Haiji was an elite runner, but has not competed due to a past injury. He then meets fellow elite runner Kakeru who also left running, but caused by a dispute. Their meeting inspires both young men to run again, with Haiji choosing the fabled "Hakone Ekiden" (long distance relay race). The race requires a 10 member team so Haiji and Kakeru recruits 8 others (some of whom have never even run before). Within this unlikely group of runners a bond is formed through their training and a belief that they can accomplish the impossible.
- Based on a novel by Shion Miura centered around the "Hakone Ekiden" marathon race.
- "Hakone Ekiden" is a prominent university marathon relay race, held in Japan on January 2-3, and runs from Tokyo to Hakone.
