Plot synopsis

It is 1987 - the zenith of Japan's economic success - and eighteen-year-old Yonosuke Yokomichi has moved to Tokyo from Nagasaki.

Normalin every way possible, Yonosuke finds himself out of step with his seemingly more worldly counterparts at university. Despite his somewhat goofy exterior, Yonosuke befriends fellow freshmen Ippei Kuramochi and Yui Akutsu during the opening commencement ceremony. Together with his new friends he joins the samba club. Although showing little talent, Yonosuke takes to dancing with wild abandon.

During lunch one day Yonosuke meets Kato, a handsome boy popular with the girls,and the two become good friends. Soon after, while taking driving classwith Kato, Yonosuke meets Shoko, an eccentric rich girl who shows interest in Yonosuke. But Yonosuke hardly notices her advances. He is infatuated with a mysterious older woman named Chiharu who plays the plethora of rich men prevalent during the "bubble time" like pawns in a game of chess.

Juxtaposed against the depiction of this year of college life in the late 1980s, the characters of A Story Of Yonosuke are also seen sixteen years later. However, missing is the affable Yonosuke, who is said to have become a cameraman after college. Little do they know of the selfless tragedy that has befallen their "ordinary" friend.
