Duomo in Florence

Living in Florence, Italy, Junsei Agata is studying to be a restoration expert who specializes in fine art. He feels life is empty. He clings to the memory of Aoi, a girl from school. One day, he learns Aoi is in Milan and finds she lives with a wealthy American businessman. He finds she lives in a different world and runs back to Japan.

Junsei remembers a 10-year promise. When he was a college student in Japan, he made a promise with Aoi to meet on the top of the Duomo in Florence on her 30th birthday. He hangs on to one slight hope that Aoi must have remembered the promise. He decides to return to Florence to prove the love between him and Aoi is true.
