    • Synopsis
    • Norifumi Takada, an author who released a series of marvellous novels including a "The immaculate cat", has not written any line ever since his wife passed away. Ando, another popular novelist who is Takada's junior and his admirer, is worried about Takada. Takada's daughter Natsuko is in distressed over her husband's infidelty. When she learned that his lover was one of her own friends, Natsuko turns to her father for advice. Takada confesses to his daughter that he himself has suffered from an affair between his wife and his friend, and tells her that he managed to survived the problem, albeit in a rather pathetic way, without even punching the friend. Later Takada finds out that his daughter's enemy is Sayo, a woman he recently met at his favourite bar. Moreover, Sayo is the one who turned down a marriage proposal from Takada's son Takashi, and Takashi's fiancee Tokiko is concerned about him for the bitter experience. Unaware of such events happening in the background, Takada starts to fall for
      Sayo, as she spills her woes to Takada that she keeps meeting married men and cannot reject it when begged by men, etc. Then, Sayo asks Takada: "Now you must know who I'm falling in love with?"
      In the meantime Takada's 60th birthday, organised by the mistress of his favourite bar and Ando, takes place and all the characters throng for the occasion. What future lies before Takada and Sayo? Will his 60th birthday bash end in a happy-ever-after mood? An entangled drama of love and affection among the15 hapless romantics now begins to unfold.
