Sometimes a song can save your life.
Love of music unites the four members of the band Given: hotheaded guitarist Uenoyama, playboy drummer Akihiko, gentle bassist Haruki, and Mafuyu, a singer gifted with great talent and burdened by past tragedy. Their struggles and conflicts may drive them apart, but their bond to the music--and to each other--always brings them back together again.
Uenoyama realizes he's in love with Mafuyu and steals a kiss from him backstage at their first live performance. But now he's even more confused--he hasn't shared his feelings with Mafuyu and has no idea how Mafuyu feels about him. Meanwhile, Haruki has been harboring a secret desire for bandmate Akihiko, who's already entangled in an intense, conflicted relationship with someone else.
