Tsuji works in a fireworks business. He is having an affair with Mrs Hosakawa, his immediate superior and also with a young colleague. Both of them imagine a ring on their finger. But Tsuji does not know what he wants... until the day he meets Ukiyo, saving her life at a level crossing. He is not aware of how much she is going to change his life. He realises then that he has found Love with a capital letter until that day when Ukiyo dis appears.

“Women are always represented as consumer products for love and sex at the disposition of men, and their value is determined by the distance which exists between the former and the latter. But the story of this film attempts to show that this female figure has developed in fact under pressure from a male chauvinist society, and denounces how much women suffer from being drawn into this spiral. For me, Ukiyo’s behaviour towards men is nothing but the expression of deeply sincere mimicry, which she instinctively adopted in order to survive in this man’s world. Just like a chameleon which would change colour in function of its environment, Ukiyo uses mimicry to protect herself from the male order” Kôji Fukada
