The story is set in the early 1940s at Tokyo where Suda plays a young violinist named Sano Masashi who leaves his hometown in Nagasaki to work in Tokyo, encounters various setbacks but manages to mature as an individual and overcome the odds with the support of the people around him. Suda commented that he had to learn various new things for the filming such as rakugo and playing the violin and he might not have the chance to do that or meet Sada if he did not take up the offer for this drama. Suda also mentioned how he enjoyed playing in a band as the story depicted his character forming a folk band with his senior high schoolmates and is even considering forming a band named "Chanpons" in real life after Sada encouraged him to do so.
This is the second time that Sada's autobiography is made into a drama (the previous drama was "Kasuteira" but Sada says that he doesn't know how the drama will end because it has a different storyline and is looking forward to watching this every week. He also praised Suda for being a good actor and is happy about the latter resembling him a little bit.
