After being beaten unconscious, Shigeo wakes with no memory of his name, but a desire to sing. He meets Kasumi, the young manager of popular band Akainu, who nicknames the amnesiac “Pochi” and persuades him to join them as a vocalist. All seems well until Pochi’s memory begins to return, along with his violent past.
