Kaoru is an intelligent teenage boy who has never had much success in getting to know his peers. That is partly due to his scholastic nature, as he spends extensive time studying and is not naturally very social, but it's also because his father moves around a lot and so he never seems to stay in one play long enough to make friends. In Kyushu, however, he finds himself becoming close to two members of his class. The three have little in common on the surface, but they share a deep love of jazz, and that makes them fast friends.
