Story
Uchida Momoko, a manga artist popular for her sensual work, lives on the top floor of a swanky apartment building in Futako Tamagawa. She has a new husband Kaito and a son Shuji who is a university student. Tomizawa Mizuki and her husband Ichita are a family of five in the same apartment building. Momoko and Mizuki, who is a career woman, are of the same age and have become friends. They catch up with each other and relieve stress at their regular dining bar. One day, a newly married couple moves into one of the apartments. The man is Kamoi Yosuke, the ex-husband that Momoko divorced 20 years ago and his new wife is Rumi. It is rare for a former husband and wife to remarry and become neighbours. Furthermore, the arrival of this new couple brings a “secret” that Momoko and Mizuki have into the open. The relationships between these three wives and three families begin to take the shape of more than mere neighbours … …
