This story is set in Tokyo, after a shower of bubbles fell on the earth, subverting the laws of physics. Isolated from the rest of the world, Tokyo has become the playground of a group of young people who have lost their families, the backdrop for battles between parkour teams flying between buildings. One day Hibiki, a young champion famous for his reckless style, makes a rash move and falls into the sea that obeys the force of gravity.
Uta, a girl with mysterious powers, saves his life. At that moment, the two hear a particular sound, imperceptible to the others. Why did the fates of Hibiki and Uta cross? Their meeting is the beginning of a revelation that will change everything.
