Mizuki Hayase (Haru) is 25 years old and her mother Akiko (Yuki Saito) is 50 years old. Mizuki Hayase teaches English at a girls’ high school. Aikiko is a devoted mother to Mizuki and Mizuki totally trusts her mother. In fact, the two are like best friends. Mizuki’s father Koji (Yasufumi Terawaki) is like an outsider in the relationship between mother and daughter.

While Mizuki spends time with Matsushima, she realizes that has been too dependent on her mother. Soon, Akiko feels like her daughter is getting more distant from her.
