: : : The Place Promised in Our Early Days


In an alternate timeline, Japan was divided after World War II, with the northernmost island of Hokkaido being annexed. Toward the end of the 20th century, a giant tower was constructed on the northern island, and while its purpose remains a mystery, tensions between North and South grow. In this environment, three high schoolers--two childhood friends working on a home-built plane to explore the mystery of the tower, and a girl that both of them fall in love with--make a promise. But time moves on and things change, and the project is left unfinished as each of the friends follows a different path in life and the girl falls victim to a mysterious illness. When a series of inexplicable events bring the destinies of the three together again, there may be something deeper at stake than love, lost youth, and that fateful project to build an airplane.
