As a Labrador pup, Quill lived with a couple, Isamu and Mitsuko Nii, who work as volunteers training guide dogs. After Quill grows up, he is taken to a guide dog school by a friendly yet firm trainer named Satoru Tawada (Kippei Shiina). Although Quill is a little slower than the other dogs at the school, he seems to have an unusual empathy and remarkable patience with his trainers. Tawada decides that Quill would be ideal for Mitsuru Watanabe (Kaoru Kobayashi), but Watanabe, a lonely and illtempered middle aged man, isn’t thrilled about it. Will Quill win Watanabe over with his warmth and loyalty?
