In this crowd-pleasing comedy of everyday life, guitarist Kei (Yu Kashii), drummer Kyoko (Aki Maeda), and bassist Nozumi (Shiori Sekine) are forced to recruit a new lead vocalist for their band. They choose Korean exchange student Son (Bae Doo-Na) though her comprehension of Japanese is minimal. It's a race against time as the group has three days to learn three tunes for their high school festival's concert.
