A mysterious and intoxicating pop romance, Ryūsuke Hamaguchi's follow-up to the acclaimed Happy Hour begins with Asako, a young woman who meets and falls madly in love with a drifter, Baku, who one day abandons her. Two years later, Asako sees Baku again, or, rather, a young, solid businessperson named Ryohei who bears a striking resemblance to her old flame. They begin to build a happy life together until traces of Asako's past start to resurface.
