The office worker Yoshida has been smitten with his colleague Airi Gotou for the past five years. Although he finally gets a date with her, his confession is promptly rejected. Drunk and disappointed, he stumbles home and sees a high school girl sitting on the side of the road. The girl, who is looking for a place to stay overnight, tries to seduce Yoshida. Although he rejects their attempts to approach them, he invites them to his apartment.
The next morning, the girl, who introduces herself as Sayu Ogiwara, reveals that she fled from Hokkaido to Tokyo. During her six-month outing, she constantly exchanges sexual favors for a roof over her head. But Yoshida is not fooled by her attempts at seduction.
Instead, he lets them do another job, like rinsing dishes and washing laundry. Thus begins a touching relationship between an adult with a broken heart and a burnt-out high school girl.
