One hot summer day, Nobita is skipping around with a bag, only to be stopped by a group of ants walking in the middle of the path taking a lollipop. Carefully but clumsily, Nobita tries not to trample or get bitten by the ants. After succeeding, he trips and stumbles across a large tree. This large tree stuns Nobita and puts him into wonder. Later, Nobita comes back to his home excited for his upcoming birthday (August 8th, 1995) and calls for Doraemon, eventually waking him up. Nobita then has an argument with his mother and bumps into her, upsetting her. Nobita's mother and father scold and punish him for being ill-behaved. Upset, Nobita decides to run away on his own for a bit of time. Nobita then believes that he ran away from a family to Tamako and Nobisuke but Doraemon takes Nobita to when he was born to prove he's their son.
