Newly promoted managing director Masaru is besieged by the demands of work and married life. He has little patience for young half-brother, Yukio, a struggling writer. Yukio's carefree attitude to life leaves Masaru fuming, but it's his overfamiliar behaviour that leaves Masaru bothered in more ways than one.
