Midoriko Ito works at a flower shop and is married to Daisuke but this couple live separate lives without realising it. Daisuke isnʼt the salaryman he pretends to be while Midoriko is visiting a dubious "pregnancy classroom" without telling him. They are unable to talk to each other and as time goes on their relationship becomes stifling. When the two are forced to confront the various secrets fraying the bond of their intertwined lives, what will be the result?

The gap between a fantasy and reality is analysed here as a seemingly happy young couple look at the substance of their relationship in this bittersweet dramedy.
