  • Theme song: "Goodbye Yesterday" by Imai Miki


Imai Miki plays Midori, a fashion industry executive who is dedicated to her job but beginning to wonder if she is not missing something in life. Company colleague and former lover Yoshida Eisaku suggests she needs a husband and children and appears ready to take on the assignment. But Imai insists it is a deeper, more internal question like: "Why was I born and what am I supposed to do in this life?" Little does she know she is about to meet Koichiro, the heir to a tea ceremony empire and a young man who has had all those questions answered for him since birth.

The young son of a famous Japanese tea family returns to Japan after several years abroad only to deny inheritance of the family business to work at a famous clothing company called "Dior." After falling in love with a much older woman who works at the clothing company, he finds himself after trying out other lines of work.
