Impoverished graduate student Kento nearly freezes to death outside his new cheap (unheated) apartment during a blizzard.

Over the following year, the two share meals together, but as the time passes, the closeted Kento finds it increasingly difficult to ignore his growing feelings. Will he choose to maintain the peaceful, happy times he’s grown to love or risk it all for the possibility of something more?
