Growing up in the suburbs in post-war Japan, it seemed to Hajime
that everyone but him had brothers and sisters. His sole companion
was Shimamoto, also an only child. Together they spent long
afternoons listening to her father's record collection. But when
his family moved away, the two lost touch. Now Hajime is in his
thirties. After a decade of drifting he has found happiness with
his loving wife and two daughters, and success running a jazz bar.
Then Shimamoto reappears. She is beautiful, intense, enveloped in
mystery. Hajime is catapulted into the past, putting at risk all he
has in the present.
