Official Website

From 10.00 p.m., Fridays, 19 April 2019


Four women who became close friends through a chance encounter have frequent gatherings where they drink, converse and vent their frustrations. However, they actually have serious issues which they cannot tell others. Shibasaki Kaori is a doctor who feels burdened by the suicide of her lover Kido Koichiro. Although his son Takashi suspects her involvement in his death, they are drawn to each other. Noguchi Tomomi’s husband Toshiya went missing overseas and she recently received an insurance payout after he was deemed to be dead. She meets a new man Yasuoka Shuhei who makes her feel excited about romance for the first time in a long while, and feels depressed when their date is cancelled. Harada Saeko has a disagreement with her husband Satoshi who wants children. As they grow apart, she ends up getting close to her colleague Sakaguchi Arata and has a one night stand. Mizushima Juri has had a string of lovers. But when she meets a lesbian who is about to get married, she finds herself attracted to her and experiences true love for the first time in her life. Will the four women find their happy ever afters?
