Tetsuo Shinohara follows up his acclaimed Tsuki to Kyabetsu and Kusa no Ue no Shigoto with this tale about love and broken washing machines. Kizaki (Michitaka Tsutsui) came to Tokyo from Osaka with dreams of becoming a famous <I>manga</I> artist. Instead, he works as a salesman in a used appliance shop located in a rundown part of town. For some reason, he has a particular affinity toward aged washing machines; he obsesses about the inner workings and quirks of each make and model. Also at the job is Setsuko (Yasuko Tomita), the owner's daughter, who is still reeling from a recent divorce and the loss of her job as a DJ. Not naturally a ladies' man, Kizaki quietly longs to ask her out but doesn't dare until she suddenly invites him on a date. Gobsmacked, he agrees. Unfortunately, on the day of the big date, he has to play for his boss' baseball team and the game inevitably gets delayed. While waiting for him, Setsuko runs into Okami (Kaoru Kobayashi) -- a former employee at her dad's shop turned dissolute gambler -- and they go out for drinks. When Kizaki gets there, he runs into Hideko (Ayano Momose), a worker at the local bakery, who unlike the coquettish Setsuko, has very overt feelings for Kizaki. Later that night, Kizaki spots Setsuko and takes after her, leaving one very angry Hideko in his wake. One thing leads to another and Setsuko and Kizaki hit the sack; Kizaki is immediately in love. Later while walking again with Hideko, he spots his true love embracing Okami.
