Cast & Crew
Haiji was an elite runner, but has not competed due to a past injury. He then meets fellow elite runner Kakeru who gave up running because of a dispute. Their meeting inspires both young men to run again, with Haiji deciding to run the long distance relay race which requires a 10 member team. Haiji and Kakeru recruit 8 other runners, some of them beginners. Within this unlikely group a bond is formed through their training, and a belief that they can accomplish the impossible.
