Yoshika, a 24-year-old office clerk, is in her tenth year of unrequited love for Ichimiya, a fellow student in middle school. Now 'Two', a persistent fellow worker, asks her out. As no one has ever done this before, she is pleased, but their relationship does not seem to catch fire. This cannot be said for the futon in her apartment, which bursts into flame from conntact with electric heater. The fire is extinguished, but her brush with death makes her determined to see the itchi again, and she sets to work organizing a reunion of classmates who by large don't remember her at all. Obsessed with her imaginary 'One', and timid with regard to the real 'Two', Yoshika struggles to find herself, torn between fantasy and reality, and between what she really wants and what she really doesn't.
