Daisuke works at a stationary supply company, and is something of a softie, but with a pessimistic view toward marriage. He returns from work one day looking for rest and repose in his recently purchased condo only to find it billowing smoke. Panicking, he runs into a woman in the apartment of a neighbor, Hanako, until he realizes that his apartment isn’t on fire, but that his father has come uninvited from the countryside and is trying to smoke meat on the balcony. What’s more, he’s brought his stepson with him and plans to stick around. Soon, Daisuke’s comfortable bachelor pad is populated by three men.
