Sparked by The Beatles song, Toru (Matsuyama) reflects on his life in the 1960s and the suicide of his friend Kizuki (Kora). Picking up the pieces, he draws close to Naoko, Kizuki's girlfriend. As the two deal with their grief, another woman enters Toru's life, changing it forever.
Murakami's 'unadaptability' for the screen is self-evident to fans of his books, but this is a noble if bleak first stab.
