In 1978, Mayumi Sawada lives a good life in a small town in Gifu, where her family runs a successful farming business. Her older sister Sachiko is about to be married, and her other sister Yukie runs a hair salon. Mayumi also becomes friends with her crush, Seiji Moriyama. A few days before he leaves for college in Tokyo, Seiji takes Mayumi to a pretty area with a view of the whole town, where he gives Mayumi a button from his gakuran jacket, telling her that he wants her to have it. However, one night, while Sachiko and Yukie are visiting Tokyo, Mayumi decides to sleep in Sachiko's room. Sachiko's ex-boyfriend breaks into the house, enters Sachiko's room, and pours sulfuric acid on Mayumi's face, thinking it was Sachiko lying in the bed. He then kills Mayumi's mother before being shot dead by her father. Mayumi survives the ordeal, but is left severely disfigured due to the sulfuric acid.
