Miyagawa Mio (Matsumoto Honoka) lost her parents when she was young, and she runs a lakeside inn with her grandmother. However, her grandmother's hospitalization forces her to close the inn, and she heads to Tokyo with her hopes pinned on Misawa Kyosuke (Mitsuishi Ken), who was a good friend of her father's.
