The bittersweet heart of a high school girl is on full display in this drama as we see her swaying innocently between being a child and an adult.

Life is gentle for Sanae (OGAWA An) since she comes from a rich family and lives a life of luxury and stability. Attending an all-girl’s school further shields her from the outside world and so what she knows best are her kind and funny friends and family. Things change when her father hires a quiet guy named Yusuke (ISHIDA Hoshi) to be a housekeeper and the two of them begin to connect. Just as Yusuke seems to be becoming part of the family and Sanae’s thoughts become consumed with him, one of her father’s employees, an unscrupulous guy named YAMASHITA (TANAKA Shunsuke), begins to investigate him for his own ends, and discovers something about his past which causes a split that leaves Sanae caught between her first love and YAMASHITA’s predatory advances...
