[ Story ]
Sosuke Tashiro is on an elite career course at a major bank, until he is transferred - or rather relegated - to a subsidiary company, where he reaches retirement age. After decades of single-minded dedication to his work, he finds himself at a loss.
Days pass with nothing for him to do, and time goes by at a snail's pace... Sensing that this is no way to grow old, Sosuke starts visiting a sports gym to get back in shape, and tries to kill time at a local library. However, when he looks around, all he sees are other aging people whose lives have also "finished"... Eventually, he begins to complain to his busy beautician wife Chigusa, causing the distance between them to grow even further.
"I don't want my life to end like this." Sosuke picks up the courage to look for work at a nearby job center, but his glittering academic background and impressive resume get in the way, and he has little luck. Worst of all, his wife and daughter mock him, suggesting that he should find himself a girlfriend...
Sosuke considers going to graduate school to study literature. He stops by an adult education school where he becomes acquainted with a certain woman, and senses the possibility of romance...
Then he meets the president of an IT company at the sports gym, setting Sosuke's destiny in motion once more...
