Inspired by the Italian aircraft designer Caproni, he puts everything into creating flying works of art. In 1927, he gets a job at one of Japan's leading aircraft factories and begins developing what would become the Zero fighter plane used by the Japanese during World War II. In parallel, a love story is told. Jiro meets the beautiful Nahoko under extreme conditions.
