The protagonist, Asuka Misawa, is a girl from an alien race of green-haired dryads. Crashlanding on Earth, she falls in love with a human, Nobuhiko Shimamura. Although Asuka attempts to live a life of normalcy by dying her hair black and working at a coffee shop, she is compelled towards suicide by the titular piece of music: the melody of which embodies her mother's command that she walk into the sea.
