Hitomi Saito works for a major animation production company. She gave up a stable career as a public servant to join the anime industry, and has at last been given her first chance to direct with a series called "Soundback: The Kanade Stone." Despite her eagerness to make the most of the opportunity, storm clouds soon gather over the production floor. Yukishiro, the producer who handpicked Hitomi for the job, is also a tricky character who'll go to ruthless lengths to ensure his "product" sells. Sure enough, he frequently clashes with Hitomi, who is determined not to compromise her creative vision.
