50-year-old scriptwriter Yahagi Keisuke used to be called the “big hit drama maker”. His specialty is the romance genre and he has created many dramas with average viewership ratings exceeding 25%. The world of romance which he portrayed in his 30s, captivated women in Japan. However, Keisuke has not been able to write for almost five years. Even when he does write, it is not a hit. His wife has also deserted and divorced him. One night, Keisuke encounters a 30-something drunken female who complains and swears at friends and juniors at his regular bar. They part in the worst possible way. Some days later, Keisuke participates in a project meeting for a drama. It is the first time in a long while that he has received an offer to write. He is surprised to see that the director he has been introduced to is none other than the woman he had a horrible encounter with … … She is Sakai Hitomi.
