Shibata Michiko is a thirty years old woman without any capability. Ever since the company she previously worked at has gone out of business, she is struggling to find a new job without much success. To make things worse, she spends every last bit of her savings on a much younger guy, whom she treats like her boyfriend. But one day, Michiko happens to run into her former superior, Kurosawa Ayumu, who, contrary to her unpleasant memories of him, unexpectedly offers her a part time work at his restaurant.
Both are Japanese romantic comedies. The two respective protagonists, Michiko and Hotaru might have different personalities, but they are both considered to be 'hopeless' and end up living with their former or current superior at work.
