In a tale of schoolboy crushes, a protective sister tries to stop a group of homophobes from harassing her brother. Worse yet, she discovers it's the object of her brother's affections leading the harassment. Another young student, Kanome, finds himself alone in the library with a classmate he has the hots for. By sexually charging the conversation, Kanome's clever tongue may score him a bit of action.
A more serious sketch follows Minori, a boy who is debating about coming out to his family. Shortly after he decides that neither he nor his family is ready, his sister jumps the gun and outs him at the dinner table. Once the shock fades and the dust settles, will this family be able to come together in acceptance, or has Minori forever torn his family apart?
Other stories introduce the heartbreak of unreciprocated life-long devotion, a glimpse into the nightlife of a sultry hustler, and the hilarious antics caused by sexual tension between friends.
