Synopsis: Satoko (Ikewaki Chizuru) just got dumped by her boyfriend, and works a thankless reception job at a call girl service. Her only consolation in life: drinking beer and mumbling prayers to a small stone which she has christened a god. Satoko’s death-obsessed call-girl friend Akiyo (Nakamura) sleeps in a coffin and is diligently saving up money for a fifth-floor condo – so she can efficiently jump out and kill herself when the moment calls for it. Her only consolation: drinking with her friend Kikuchi (Ando Masanobu) whom she secretly loves. Reclusive illustrator Toko(Iwase Toko) is thrown into a bitter binge-eating slump by the news of her ex-boyfriend’s imminent marriage, and by her current assignment to draw God. Toko’s roommate Chihiro(Nakagoshi Noriko) is an outwardly cheerful office worker who loves shopping, makeup, and her egotistical boyfriend (Kase Ryo), but the unrewarding relationship leaves her no less lonely than Toko. Anonymous faces in a big city, these four women struggle to find happiness on their own terms.
