Synopsis: Based on a manga of the same title illustrated by Setona Mizushiro, it is about a 30-year-old unemployed woman, Ichiko’s love life. She meets Ryoichi at a drinking establishment. Even though he is a lot younger than her, she can't forget him. Meanwhile, similar to the current Pixar hit, INSIDE OUT, Ichiko has 5 different characters in her brain that governs her actions:  "Yoshida" presides over the meeting as the chairman; "Ishibashi" is the optimist; "Ikeda" is the pessimist; "Hatoko" is the character that lives in the moment;  and "Kishi" thinks about the past.
