Nadaya Sake has found itself in dire straits as of late, and the current owner, Kenkichi, has even become something of a pitiable name among the locals. As Kenkichi's father-in-law (the erstwhile owner) begins to notice a suspicious taste to their once famous product, Kenkichi's daughter, Kunie, is on track to marry into the wealthy Sato family as a means to help her own. Although Kenkichi opposes a marriage that isn't based on love, he becomes deeply concerned when rumour has it that his other daughter, Kimiko, has become the object of the Sato boy's affection. What will become of Kunie when (or if) she learns the truth about her sister, the girl in the rumour?
