On the other hand, naive and sweet-natured nana has been blessed with a stable family environment and the most pressing issue in her life is her boyfriend! Fate brings these two very different girls together and the film traces their fortunes as they navigate the trials and tribulations of love and the difficulties facing young women in the bustling and often intimidating metropolis of Tokyo.

Unfortunately, nana finds that the course of true love does not always run smoothly. nana receives some good news, however, when she wins a ticket to see her favorite band, the hit sensation TRAPNEST, in concert and invites NANA along. NANA has reservations about seeing the band play live and it is now that nana discovers the secrets of her friend's past - NANA's unresolved feelings towards TRAPNEST's guitarist, Ren, her ex-boyfriend and ex-BLACK STONES bassist.

Will NANA and Ren be reunited? Nana Komatsu is pregnant with her first child, but Nana Oosaki seems to be stroke by it, since it is not the child of her friend Nobu, but of TRAPNEST's bassist Takumi.
