Seiji Take (Kazunari Ninomiya) is a young man who quits his job after working for only 3 months. He has no dreams, no will and zero money. He also fights with his father over his ways and then becomes a “hikkimori” – a recluse who never leaves his room. When his mother falls ill due to depression, Seiji is then forced to take a part time job at a construction company. He believes his job is just temporary and acts distant with his co-workers. Seiji then meets on site-supervisor Manamai Chiba (Karina) whose personality is the polar opposite of Seiji’s. They have disagreements at first but become more understanding of each other. Through his work Seiji’s outlook on life starts to change and he starts to rebuild his life.
