Natsuko lives the lesbian lifestyle and finds freedom in having sex with whomever she pleases. Her ex-lover is Tomomi, who now pretends to be heterosexual. Kana arrives onto the scene, who hates lesbians because of her mother’s abandonment of her family.
The ever-lively and upbeat Natsuko tries to mend a broken heart by carrying on with a string of short-lived affairs after her break-up with Tomomi. But when Tomomi announces her plans to marry – a man – Natsuko becomes inconsolable. While all this is taking place, Natsuko’s straight male roommate is grappling with his own feelings for her, and a young high school girl comes to Tokyo searching for the mother that long ago left her for a female lover. Each character – queer, straight, male, female, young, old, and in-between – struggles to make peace with him/herself as all their lives overlap. This story captures the power of young love, and the web of the city.
