A high-school student who is indifferent to others picks up a diary in a hospital. It is the diary kept by his very popular classmate YAMAUCHI Sakura, who is suffering from a pancreatic illness and doesn’t have much longer to live. Sakura’s determination to enjoy her life to the fullest gradually changes his attitude. The animation is a straightforward recreation of the original novel by SUMINO Yoru, which also inspired a popular live-action film.
