    • Her wedding company having gone broke in Tokyo, Shoko (Machiko Ono) comes to Bali, determined to end her life. There she encounters Aniki (Shinichi Tsutsui), an eccentric millionaire who she first believes is an expatriate Japanese gangster. He is in fact a middle-school dropout, a former biker, who has become rich in Bali real estate. She decides to learn from him how to become rich, and he sets her to work cleaning toilets and various other jobs. In disgust she quits, but then learns about his charitable activities from Ryu (Hiroshi Tamaki), who left a promising career as an eye doctor in Japan to work for Aniki. Meanwhile a stalker, Sugita (Naoto Inti Raymi), tracks Shoko down, determined that she is going to marry him.
      Aniki has plans to build an ‘Anikindergarten’ for the children of the island. But problems arise, and the project stalls. Aniki, whose motto is ‘When you fail, laugh’, finds even his faith in himself now being shaken...
