Four grown sisters return to life under one roof in the Hanawa home, headed by their “hunk” of a father and perennially girlish mother (who adores her husband and never doubts for a moment that his feelings are mutual). Although raised under the example of a seemingly model marriage, the “four Hanawa sisters” themselves are either divorced, devoutly single, in the market for a husband or simply unlucky in love. The second eldest daughter, Takemi, is the “black sheep” of the family who returns home after multiple divorces and three kids in tow. Having lived her life as honest to her own feelings as possible, she can’t help but stir trouble - leading to some hilarious predicaments - and always commands the center of attention, earning her such nicknames as “problem child”, “love-starved man-killer” and “she-devil.” “Marriage”, however, is the constant operative word in this domestic drama of women in search of a formula to happiness.
