The main character is nameless, but she feels like a nobody. A random encounter with a couple underscores this, as the other girl refers to her as "a stray dog." She joins a pen-pal group and receives a letter from a boy who signs his letter "Nobody," feeling the same as she. By chance, she meets the boy from the couple, who takes a liking to her. They spend time together and attend a beach party, where the other girl slips a letter to him. She was delivering a letter from "Nobody," and it is revealed that the two main characters have been writing each other the letters.
