Up-and-coming Japanese filmmaker Ishikawa Kei, whose last feature film Gukoroku: Traces of Sin premiered at the Venice Film Festival, directs Listen to the Universe, the live-action adaptation of Onda Riku's award-winning music-themed novel Mitsubachi to Renai. The film revolves around the growth and challenges of four musicians of different backgrounds – portrayed by Matsuoka Mayu (Shoplifters), Matsuzaka Tori (Call Boy), Morisaki Win (Ready Player One) and newcomer Suzuka Oji – who join the same international piano competition that is regarded as a springboard for young pianists.
Eiden Aya (Matsuoka Mayu) is a former child prodigy who gave up piano when she lost her mother at age 13. At the age of 20, she returns to the music stage and meets three other contestants. Takashima Akashi (Matsuzaka Tori) has a stable job working at an instrument store, but he doesn't want to give up on his dream yet. Right at the age limit, he decides to take one last chance and enter the competition. Masaru C. Levi Anatole (Morisaki Win), who boasts an elite educational background, is the favorite to win it all. Finally, teen Kazama Jin (Suzuka Oji) is the mysterious wild card with no performance history who studied under the world's top pianist.
