Shoji Segawa (Ryuhei Matsuda) was a quiet and inconspicuous boy, but, for the first time, he is recognized by people after winning the National Middle School Shogi Tournament. At the age of 26, his dream of becoming a professional shogi player collapses due to an age restriction. After he quits playing shogi, he becomes desperate. With the support of his peers, including Yuya Suzuki (Yojiro Noda), and his love of shogi, Shoji Segawa begins to play shogi again. A miracle happens to him.
