[ Story ]

The feature length debut by director Akiyama Mayu, whose short film depicting an intersexual protagonist, Gyarusonnu-Futatsu no Sei wo Motsu Onna, attracted much interest. The film asks if friendship exists between the sexes through the story of a strictly contractual companionship of a man and woman.
By a certain circumstance, web magazine editor Mochizuki Nasa (Tokunaga Eri) meets Yanase Sota (Hashimoto Jun) who claims to be endowed with a "non-sexual relationship switch". Working as a "rent-a-friend", Sota is hired by Nasa who wants to test out a theory.
