A growing story of a girl and her mom, that having the sweetest dream of the world.

Won-woo, who lives with her grandmother and mom, suffers from narcolepsy. She constantly feels lonely at school but maintains a vivacious outlook and big dreams for the sake of her mother. One day, for a school project she happens to be paired with Jun-seo, who is one of her biggest teasers. Jun-seo teaches her how to use a camera and ride a bicycle, and Won-woo finds herself feeling attracted to him. She hears a dream-like whistling sound whenever sleep suddenly sets in, allowing her to endure the disastrous incidents. The song disappears when she wakes, by the way, whose sound is it anyway?
