Satoko Ogata is a brilliant psychiatrist, 39 and single. She loves her work and has a good social life with her friends, but as she nears 40 her best friend of many years tells her, “If you want children you have to get married soon” prodding her to actively seek “happiness as a woman.” One day, Satoko meets Keitaro Okamura, a man whose devotion to ecology borders on the eccentric. As one of the “around 40 generation” who blazed a trail for the women of today, how will she deal with the situation?
