Story
31-year-old Shimada Kana is a divorced single mother and web writer. Shudo Yuri is a serious office lady with a past while 36-year old Deguchi Nao is a very popular and beautiful jewellery designer. The only things that interest Nao are handsome guys, delicious food and cute things. She has a spacious house that is overflowing with garbage that she is completely incapable of cleaning up. Her business partner Shikatani cannot stand to see this and proposes that she let out rooms cheaply on condition that her tenants do the cleaning. Kana and Yuri both have their own reasons for wanting to move in and come for interviews. Nao tells them to do what they want since they will not become friends and immediately decides to let them move in. The three of them who have totally different personalities, jobs and status, start sharing an apartment. There is only one thing that they have in common – they have no friends. At first, Nao, Kana and Yuri reject intrusions on their personal lives. But once they start living together, they cannot stop talking. As they start to speak from the heart, they get on terms where they can voice the feelings and troubles that they have never been able to tell anyone. Is it hell that awaits them, or … …?
