In a moment of spontaneous rebellion, Fuuka Miyazawa bids farewell to her once-glamorous idol career, turning her back on the limelight. Instead of returning home to Morioka, she sets off on an impromptu adventure, her heart burdened with a heavy sorrow. As fate dictates, she finds herself stumbling upon the enchanting Gama Gama Aquarium in the breathtaking landscapes of Okinawa—an aging haven teetering on the precipice of closure. In this perilous bubble of uncertainty, where footfalls echo emptily and necessary repairs threaten to put an end to its existence, the director grapples with the disheartening decision of shutting its doors forever, come summer's end. Devoted to her aquatic haven, Kukuru Misakino, the director's spirited granddaughter, cannot bear the thought of this cherished aquarium being consigned to oblivion. Fueled by immense determination, she resolves to amass the funds needed to keep its grand entrance unbarred. Witnessing the ethereal magic only the aquarium possesses, Fuuka pleads with Kukuru for a chance to contribute, longing for purpose. However, her inexperience becomes an unexpected stumbling block, hindering her instead. In the midst of this uphill battle, Kukuru soon discovers that her lofty aspirations may prove too daunting to conquer. Pressed under the weight of external scrutiny and mounting challenges, can they navigate turbulent waters and salvage the cherished sanctuary before it slips away forever?
