High schoolers Mitsusha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. They build a connection by leaving notes and messages but long for a chance to finally meet. Is the string of fate between Mitsusha and Taki strong enough to bring them together, or will forces outside their control leave them forever separated?
