As the war escalates, Chise struggles to maintain her fading humanity. Amid the wreckage of warfare, both Chise and her boyfriend Shuji are learning painful and fatal lessons. Being a teenager is difficult, especially when your hometown is the target for constant missile attack.
Grappling with issues like love, trust and responsibility, Chise is buckling under the pressure of her double life. Responding to her country's military needs, she must also find time to complete her daily homework assignments. Yes, war is hell. But being a one-woman wrecking crew is no picnic either.
