    • Synopsis
    • While going through a particularly dire patch in her career and marriage, cosmetics saleswoman Tohka Tomokawa returns to the island where she grew up to attend the second memorial service for her late mother. She is greeted by her father Seiji, who is wearing her mother’s clothes. As if that doesn’t come as enough of a shock, Seiji goes on to tell Tohka that he is getting married a local handyman named Kazuo Fujita. What’s more, Kazuo has a high school-age daughter named Daria.

      While Tohka finds herself unable to process this mind-boggling situation, her younger brother Midori, who is married to a Sri Lankan woman named Samjhana, is happy with his father’s decision, and he and the rest of the family get ready to celebrate the new couple.

      While out spying on her father, Tohka meets Daria’s classmate, Taki Natsuno. The majority of the islanders accept Seiji’s dress-wearing, but Taki doesn’t like it at all. Relieved to find someone else who shares her concerns, Tohka takes matters further by asking Kazuo why he wants to marry her father. She learns that Seiji might actually be dead serious about his stated desire to become a mother.

      Then one day, Taki suddenly turns up at school with his hair dyed pink and his face bruised, causing a commotion among the other students. He invites Daria to leave the island with him and live freely, and they attempt an escape, but...

      Will Seiji’s marriage bring about a loving and peaceful resolution for his family, and the island?!
