Shizuko, the heiress of the wealthy Makita family, has closed her heart since her parents died in an accident. She lives with her housekeeper, Natsu, in the mansion left to her by her grandfather. One day, Natsu drops a plant pot from the window and it hits a man who happens to be walking by. The man survives, but loses his memory. Natsu feels responsible for the accident and proposes that the man will be taken care of by the Makitas until his memory returns.

With the help of the man who said, "I feel like I was a master at something," the mission to restore his memory begins! What was the man's mastery of? And when all of the man's memories are restored, a plan that involves Shizuko and Natsu begins to take shape.

[Director's Statement]

In 2020, our daily lives have changed drastically due to the spread of COVID-19. As the production of movies and dramas continues to be postponed, I have been agonizing over what I can do for movies and what I can do for entertainment. This film is a comedy that I have been working on for more than 10 years. Comedy can be a lubricant for the human heart. I was able to complete this film as an independent film with a cast and staff who agreed with my idea. It would be my sincere hope that this film will bring a smile to the faces of those who see it.
