Having been sent back eighteen years in time by a large-scale Revival, Satoru finds himself in the middle of his old elementary school as a ten year-old. After class, Satoru rushes home to find his mother. The following evening, Sachiko returns home late from work and is greeted by her son, who finds comfort in being able to see his mother again. Realizing that being sent to this period by Revival is connected to Sachiko's murder in the future, Satoru takes notice of Kayo Hinazuki, one of his classmates who was killed during the kidnapping incident, after seeing a bruise on her leg. Having shown interest in the girl, his friends, Osamu, Kazu and Hiromi presume that Satoru harbors romantic feelings for her, while Kenya suggests for him to read an essay written by Kayo, which further hints at her troubled life at home. Wanting to understand Kayo more, Satoru decides to invite her to his birthday party, hoping to change the future so that she won't be killed.
