Synopsis: Sakuragawa Fuka (Haru), a hard-nosed lawyer of one of Japan’s largest law firms, mercilessly dispatches her opponents. An expert in divorce cases, she has never lost a case and is secretly called “iron mask”. One day, after a trial in which Fuka had cornered the defendant in court with her customary, perfect speech, Fuka is greeted by a strange guy in knickerbockers. This guy Kojitani Yota (Okada Masaki) speaks highly of her performance. Then he hugs her without warning and identifies himself as a lawyer. Meanwhile, Fuka is asked by her boss Isohata Koichiro (Otani Ryohei) to take on a divorce case. Hara Hisako (Takahashi Hitomi), the wife of the director of a large hospital, has asked for the divorce of her only son Shoji (Yamamoto Yusuke). The lawyer for Shoji’s wife Kyoko (Kawashima Umika) is the mysterious lawyer Kojitani Yota. Furthermore, Fuka learns that he belongs to the law firm of Tezuka Rokuro (Ichimura Masachika), who has been a father figure to her. With his talent for reaching an amicable settlement no matter how complicated a case may be, Yota is a complete contrast to Fuka. Although they are on opposing sides in court, he had fallen in love with her at first sight and is over-friendly while she treats him coldly. Shoji claims custody of his son (Tanaka Rei) and calls for a quick divorce. On the other hand, his wife Kyoko stubbornly insists that she will never divorce him. Thus, Fuka and Yota, who have become lawyers for a husband who is determined to divorce and a wife who will not divorce, end up fighting.
