''Sand Chronicles,'' or ''Sunadokei,'' is about the story of Ann Uekusa from her adolescence to adulthood and of the friendships, relationships, and conflicts she encounters along the way.

When twelve year old Ann Uekusa moves from Tokyo to a rural country town named Shimane with her mother following her parents' divorce, Ann has trouble adjusting to her new home and life until she meets and befriends a boy named Daigo Kitamura, and two rich siblings named Fuji and Shika Tsukishima. Ann's happiness is brief, however, when her mother commits suicide, leaving Ann with an eternal emotional scar. That is when Daigo promises to always be with her, and the two slowly begin a slowly but surely blossoming romance that has many obstacles along the way...
