Doro-matsuri is a traditional ceremony at Asage Second Junior-High School that decorates the school with clay objects. Four boys and two girls compete for the honor of being named Master of Ceremonies. Their ambition is to make this year’s doro-matsuri just as good as the one five years ago, which acquired a legendary reputation. But, the girl fell down the stairs at home and died.
