A part-timer Nina lives in a shared house with Sue and Kenji in a provincial city on the outskirts of Tokyo.
One day, she wins the lottery of travel coupons and heads to Singapore with Sue. While visiting tourist spots, they feel a bit disappointed with the town-scapes because what they see is so similar to what they usually see in Tokyo, and they get separated by accident.
She looks for Sue throughout the town but because of her language skill, she can’t communicate well with local people and ends up getting lost by wrong guidance. When she sits down feeling exhausted in the street, a man appears and invites her to his home to have supper with his family. Impressed by the night view from the rooftop of his home, she starts to enjoy communicating with people in the town.
