A web of love affairs, a comedy of errors.

Takada, a successful novelist who’s about to turn 60, has struggled with writer’s block since the death of his wife. When the beautiful new waitress at his favourite bar shows unusual interest in him, Takada starts to believe he might be able to conquer his loneliness. Meanwhile, he becomes involved against his will in the romantic entanglements of his daughter, his son, and a young male admirer. An intricate, absorbing and ingenious romantic comedy.
