Synopsis: In the late Meiji era, Fujioka Ten (Aoi Wakana) was born into a family that runs a long-established drug wholesale business in Kyoto. She laughs easily by nature and would burst into laughter at the pranks of her siblings Shinichi (Chiba Yudai) and Rin (Hotta Mayu) who love playing practical jokes, at the expense of important business discussions. Ten is taught by their strict father Gihei (Endo Kenichi) not to smile in front of people. So she sulkily spends time at home without cracking a smile. Then one day, she meets Kitamura Tokichi (Matsuzaka Tori), the son of a rice dealer in Osaka Semba, and this transforms her life. Tokichi loves traditional performing arts and teaches her that laughter is the medicine that gives people the power to be happy. Ten falls in love with him. Shrugging off the opposition of her parents, she gets married to Tokichi. However, he ultimately ruins his family business through neglect because of his deepening love for traditional performing arts. This prompts Ten to suggest making a business out of comedy. And so the couple who are little more than amateurs, begin their great adventure to make not only the people of Osaka but also Japan laugh.
