Synopsis: Fishing enthusiast Hamasaki Densuke (Hamada Gaku) has reached his second year at Suzuki Construction’s Third Sales Division but none of the employees are any wiser about his relationship with company president Suzuki Ichinosuke (Nishida Toshiyuki), whom he calls Su-san. One day, he is ordered to go on his first business trip to inspect the company’s big project “Fishing World”. At first, Hama-chan hates the idea of the business trip. However, the moment he learns that his destination is Ise Shima, his eyes gleam. Once Hama-chan reaches Ise Shima, he leaves his astounded boss Sasaki Kazuo (Fukikoshi Mitsuru) at a fishing boat shop and quickly goes out fishing. When he drops the fishing line at the breakwater, he discovers Yajima Aki (Higa Manami), whom he had loved during his student days, down there. Meanwhile, Su-san who is in Tokyo, is itching to go fishing and cannot help but envy Hama-chan who is enjoying himself. In the end, Su-san gives in to impulse. He skips work and heads to Ise Shima together with Hama-chan’s girlfriend Kobayashi Michiko (Hirose Alice) without letting Hama-chan know. And so, Hama-chan, Su-san, Michiko and Sasaki end up gathered in Ise Shima. What kind of commotion will they get involved in?
