In about 20 hours, these two strangers will both meet here at the “miracle” moment. Gakkun has an accountancy examination coming up. On the morning of Christmas Eve, he notices Duffy, the teddy bear that should have been in his room, is missing and panics. Last night, Duffy had a small bottle containing a love letter around its neck. This is because there is a rumour that love will blossom when a love letter is put into Duffy’s small bottle. Gakkun’s niece Chihiro has taken Duffy for her kindergarten’s Christmas gift exchange. Gakkun hurriedly heads to the kindergarten, but Duffy is already in the hands of another child. He frantically starts to search for the teddy bear in order to get back the love letter that he wrote. On the other hand, Nao is a department store salesgirl who has spent every Christmas without a boyfriend. There is a person whom she was interested in. Half a year ago, Nao drew a pair of tickets to Tokyo Disney Sea at a bingo game during her senior’s wedding ceremony. But she did not have someone to go with. At that moment, her colleague Hashiguchi had called out to her with the suggestion that they go together on Christmas eve. Nao has been conscious of him since that day. Christmas eve finally arrives and Nao waits for an invitation from Hashiguchi. However, she learns that he has someone else he plans to propose to. This is completely contrary to her expectations and she despairs. Nao is about to throw away the Disney Sea tickets when delivery boy Iwai Kazuhiko (Chiba Yudai) appears. He wants her to give the tickets to him if she is going to throw them. Kazuhiko wishes to go to Disney Sea with his girlfriend. This makes Nao more irritated and she refuses but … … Besides Gakkun and Nao, there is Tachibana Mari (Usuda Asami), a new TV director struggling to prepare for a live programme which she has been put in charge of at Disney Sea; Uchiyama Shizue (Hara Fumina) a patissier busy making Christmas cakes; and Eiji (Diamond Yukai) a musician whose fortunes have been on the wane finally has work for the first time in a long while.
