Synopsis: Kinusaki Tadashi (Sakai Masato) is an ordinary and very well-meaning salaryman. He meets Asaka Mio (Kadowaki Mugi) at a matchmaking party. She asks Tadashi to go and meet her father. However, the man whom Tadashi meets is Kijima Genichiro (Namase Katsuhisa), the CEO of a major construction company. Mio is actually a fraudster who goes by the nickname Fragrance no Mio. She attempted to swindle 500 million yen out of Kijima but failed and is now under his control. Kijima tells Tadashi and Mio that he will let them off if she manages to steal 1 billion yen from Omori Utako (Hirosue Ryoko), the CEO of Grand Forest Resort. Should they fail to pull it off, he will kill them. Tadashi has unwittingly been made an accomplice and embroiled in a scheme. Mio lays out a plan to get 1 billion yen from Omori but this is terribly unacceptable for Tadashi. He cannot tell lies or do bad things and ends up becoming a fraudster who can never deceive people. However, Tadashi’s goodness causes this scheme to hurtle in an unexpected direction.
