She's strong-willed and dreams of becoming a novelist. He's weak-willed and is a popular writer for TV and radio. They've known each other since they were kids, having been born and grown up in the same town known for its heavy snowfalls. Can't old friends become lovers? Here's a slightly crazy love story with lots of pathos about two country kids in Tokyo.
Mizuho Tanimachi is working part-time at a cheap restaurant in a little snowy town. Having received the news that's she's won a prize in a newcomer literature contest that she's submitted her works to, she heads off for Tokyo. But then, as things would have it, she ends up not receiving any prize. And now she can't return back home. It's then that she ends up moving in the home of Kenta Morinaga, her old childhood friend from the same town in the countryside. Both of them are 26 years old and at a crossroads in their lives. They're both a little too old for new dreams, but a little too young to give up completely. This story turns out to be their love story.
