Plot

Satoko Ogata (Yuki Amami) 39 years old, a successful psychiatrist, single. She speaks her mind and is good at taking care of others. People both at work and in her private life rely on her. Her hobbies include staying at luxury Japanese inns by herself, and watching comedy shows on video. She hasn’t dated anyone for the last 5 years, let alone been married. She enjoys her job and is financially stable, and with friends like Nao (Nene Otsuka) who is 35 years old and who has declared to stay single for life, and “Ma-kun” (Michitaka Tsutsui), a friend since high school in her entourage, she has been enjoying her single life. However, her best friend Mizue (Yuki Matsushita) encourages her to start taking action if she wants to obtain “true happiness”. One day, Satoko takes Nao, who needed cheering up after a shocking event, to one of the luxury inns she regularly goes to. During her stay, she witnesses Keitaro (a slightly strange guy who is good looking but obsessed about ecology) breaking up with his girlfriend...
