Barefoot is a high-school girl who adores samurai movies and Japanese costume drama. But she doesn't stand a chance of making a samurai movie at school, as all the film club members prefer romantic dramas. One day Barefoot meets Rintaro, who is an ideal actor for the lead samurai role in a movie she wrote. And so Barefoot and her two best friends, Kickboard and Blue Hawaii, persuade Rintaro to star in the movie, also gathering unique cast and crew. However, during production, Barefoot finds out that Rintaro is a time-traveler from the future!
