The story centers around Allison Whittington, a young blonde pilot in the Roxche Air Force who has experience with biplanes. She visits her good friend Wil Schultz (short for Wilhelm) during his summer vacation at Rowe Sneyum Senior School's dormitory after being away for six months. Wil, who resides in Roxche, enjoys reading books, has a photographic memory, and is a good marksman. While out for a drive on Wil's motorcycle they run across an old man waiting on a bridge who is well-known in the area for telling false stories. They give him a ride to his home, and while there he tells them a story he claims to be true: that there is a treasure in the western region Sou Beil which could end the conflict between the two nations. Before telling them more, a man who claims to be from the town hall takes him away, though Allison & Wil quickly give chase after noticing that the man was lying.
Wil goes on a field trip with his school to the Kingdom of Ikstova where he meets up with Allison due to help from her friends in the Roxche Air Force. Allison and Wil go to a Sou Beil military camp where they meet up with Ker, now a major, and he invites them to have dinner that night. Allison and Wil get caught in a blizzard and end up in a town hidden deep in the forest where the villagers are suspicious of them. The villagers drug Allison and Wil via the tea they drink which knocks them out. When Allison and Wil do not show up for dinner, Ker goes to look for them and meets a girl named Fiona from the village.

At the start of Lillia's summer vacation, Treize arrives after traveling from Ikstova for twenty days by motorbike and brings her back home. That night, Allison informs her daughter that instead of mother and daughter going on a trip to Lartika, Lillia would now be going with Treize, though Lillia is initially reluctant about the change in plans. After arriving in Lartika, the two discover they will be staying in an expensive hotel due to Treize being a member of the royal Ikstova family. Lillia and Treize go into town, but quickly get lost despite having a map handy. A young boy approaches them and suggests they hire him to guide them around town and back to their hotel, which they agree upon. Once back to the hotel, though, a policeman intervenes and says that paying the boy for his services is prohibited by town law. The next day, Lillia and Treize take a ride on a sight-seeing plane flown by a retired military pilot. At that time, Travas informs Allison how an evil plan against Treize and his twin sister is brewing.
Allison and Wil are now married and living together in an apartment in the city. Allison's father comes to Wil and asks him to become a member of the Sou Beil intelligence agency that he himself is a member of, but Wil would have to create a new life and throw away his old one. After thinking for a long time, he informs Allison of his plans and she accepts that he has to do what he must do. Before he left, Wil got Allison pregnant, though he learns of this after he has left. Fifteen years pass and Allison is living in the same apartment with her daughter Lilliane, or Lillia for short. This day, Allison has a date with a man named Travas, though he is in fact Wil albeit with a different hair color.
Allison, Wil, Benedict, and Fiona arrive in Sou Beil, but Wil's suspicions about Major Stork remain. The next day, the four are instructed to dress nicely and Allison and Fiona walk out to find a limousine waiting for them. They are taken to a chapel where Benedict and Fiona exchange their wedding vows. When Stork arrives, Wil reveals his deductions that Stork is Allison's father. He did not die in the war, but rather exchanged name tags with his dead subordinate to bring important information to Sou Beil to avoid the war from taking a turn for the worse, resulting in an armistice between Sou Beil and Roxche. As everyone leaves, Allison tries to muster up the courage to ask Wil to live with her. However, he beats her to the punch by asking her himself. Allison kicks Wil to the ground and while she is on top of him, asks if she can kiss him (by doing so, they would be wed).
Stork gets the idea to use the alcohol to set the train's last car on fire and detach it in order to stop the military train from pursuing them. Allison notices an armored tank following them on the train tracks across the river, and Stork uses extreme persuasion to get the others to cooperate with him. Wil manages to shoot the tank with an anti-tank rifle and it cannot follow them any longer. Stork reveals to Wil that he is here to arrest Terol, and that he had to kill conductor Welch to accomplish this. Terol's bodyguard attempts to kill Allison and her friends, but Stork comes to their rescue. Upon entering Terol's room, they find him dead, apparently having committed suicide.
While out early in the morning, Allison and Wil witness Chief Conductor Welch getting pushed off the back of the train by a masked man. When Allison pursues, the man jumps on the roof and disappears after the train passes through a tunnel. Allison and Wil inform the other conductors and Ker about the situation, and they enlist help from Major Stork too. Gautier Terol, the wealthiest man on board, believes he is being targeted due to a death threat he received the previous day, and suggests he stays isolated from the other passengers for the time being. They accomplish this by detaching most of the train's cars, leaving most of the passengers behind while the train heads down the mountain to get backup with Allison, her friends, Major Stork, and Terol with his bodyguard still on board. A military train catches up to them and begins firing on the train after Stork fires a few shots from his gun.
During spring break from school, Wil meets Allison and Fiona on a luxury train which runs between the eastern and western countries. Halfway over the Lutoni River, the train stops for a flower tribute in observance of the war victims, and Wil tells Fiona how Allison's father was killed by his own subordinate since it would have been dangerous having him caught as a prisoner of war due to him likely being in the intelligence division of the military. The train makes another stop on Green Island and picks up Ker who is in disguise, and a Major with the Sou Beil military on assignment.
Nihito asks Fiona to show proof of her claim, and she produces a royal medallion which is confirmed to be real by one of the guards who was at the palace when it burned down years ago. Fiona goes on to accuse Nihito as having a part in her family's death due to a small cuff link of Nihito's that she had in her possession. Nihito retaliates by taking Fiona hostage and running up to the tower when Ker confronts him, and nearly loses his life. Allison and Wil fly their plane close to the tower which creates a strong wind that blows Nihito off the balcony which kills him. Later, Wil figures out that Fiona is not actually Francesca, and Fiona goes on to tell how she met Francesca the night of the fire, but only learned much later that she was her older twin sister.Watch Now:Amazon
Allison, Wil, Ker, and Fiona make it back to the Sou Beil air base where Ker and Allison concoct a plan to allow Allison and Wil to steal a fighter plane while Ker and Fiona fly a commercial sight-seeing plane. In the midst of the plan, the soldiers block the runway, which causes Allison to head toward the nearby town, and eventually manages to take flight as she is descending into the nearby cliffs. On the way, Fiona tells Ker that she is not a real princess, and he in turn tells her that he is not a real hero, as it was mainly due to Allison and Wil that the mural that ended the war was discovered. Ker makes a grand entrance by landing the plane as the crowd gathered for the political speech get out of the way. Ker introduces Fiona as the thought to be dead princess Francesca, but the politician Nihito objects.
Allison and Wil escape and meet up with Ker in the village where they run into Fiona who takes them back to her house. She tells them that if they take her to the capital city Kunst, she will not turn them in to the villagers. She wants to go interrupt a political speech in order to inform people that she is the princess of the royal family of Ikstova who were thought to have been all killed ten years prior, but she survived and went into exile; Fiona's real name is Francesca. They try to escape the village but are easily surrounded by the villagers, but after hearing of Fiona's plans, the village leader lets her do as she wishes. Fiona, Ker, Allison, and Wil head towards Kunst in Ker's vehicle.Watch Now:Amazon
After Ker catches up to Allison and Wil, a dogfight ensues which ends with Allison shooting Ker with paintballs. Two other fighter planes catch up and try to shoot down both Allison and Ker, but Ker gets the better of them, shooting them down instead. Allison, Wil, and Ker make it to the cave where the treasure is and find it to be an ancient mural showing Roxche and Sou Beil sharing fire, signifying at one time the two cultures were at peace. Two officers from the Sou Beil army arrive and almost shoot Allison, Ker, and Wil, but Wil shoots first. This causes one of the officers to misfire on the cave roof, causing a cave in, killing both officers. The mural serves to end the war between Roxche and Sou Beil.
The story is set in a world with a continent split down the middle by a mountain range and a vast river. The eastern side is known as Roxche, and the western side is Sou Beil. The two sides have been at war for the past 130 years, though an armistice has been in effect for the past ten years. Wil, a young man from Roxche who enjoys reading books and has a photographic memory, is spending a leisurely summer vacation at his school's dormitory when his old friend Allison, a young girl his age who is now an Air Force pilot, arrives in a biplane to greet him after not seeing him for six months. The two take a drive together on Wil's motorcycle from school and run across an old man waiting on a bridge who is well-known in the area for telling false stories. They give him a ride to his home, and while there he tells them a story he claims to be true: that there is a treasure in the western region Sou Beil which could end the conflict between the warring regions. Before he can tell them more, a man who claims to be from the town hall takes the old man away, though Wil quickly notices that the man was most likely lying. Allison and Wil chase after them and find that the old man was taken away in a large plane. Allison and Wil steal a plane in order to find out where the old man was taken.
While chasing the plane, Allison and Wil get attacked by a fighter plane and while getting away got tangled on some power lines, ultimately causing their plane to crash. As the sun is rising, Allison sees a fawn and approaches it, only to anger the fawn's mother which goes to attack Allison, but Wil gets in the way as the deer hooves his head, making him pass out. Allison carries him most of the rest of the day until they find a cottage with a single old woman who treats Wil injuries and listens to Allison's reasons for coming over to the western region. Via Allison's and Wil's sleep talking, the woman discovers that they knew and grew up with an old woman named Moot who had defected to Roxche to run an orphanage; she was known henceforth as a traitor in Sou Beil. After hearing the hardships they have been through, the woman's opinion of them and people in general from Roxche changes. She gives them her now-dead husband's and son's military uniforms to aide in their rescue of the abducted old man.
