Saya is an industrious-yet-dumb young lady working at a hotel with the tyrannical-but-attractive Susumu, who constantly insults her--until one day he suddenly asks her out on a date. Saya loves another man--playboy actor Haruki Hino--but she begins dating Susumu, and despite his emotional distance, she falls in love with him. Then, as Susumu's job pulls him away from Saya's side, Haruki confesses his love for Saya. Meanwhile, the boss's daughter has designs on Susumu, and Susumu's boss insists that he must marry her. Will Susumu and Saya be able to stay together?
