It's a Summer Film!
High school senior ‘Barefoot’ (Ito Marika) reveres the actor Katsu Shintaro and resents the fact that she can't shoot a samurai action film. After meeting Rintaro (Kaneko Daichi), a perfect match for the samurai role, barefoot immediately cranks in her film production, aiming for a guerrilla screening at the school's cultural festival.
