Synopsis

All's fair in this war between a man who wants to get married and the man who refuses to let that happen!
Tamotsu Daidoji is 51 and single. He is the chief of a medium-sized specialized trading company. He has been too devoted to work to have any marriage prospects, but has lived a perfectly honest life. But then Tamotsu has a fateful encounter with a woman 28 years his junior, and he’s touched by her smile and warmth. For the first time in his life, he decides to get married.
Kiichiro Hanazawa is 51 and married. He is an elite executive with an impressive track record at a first-class general trading company. Blessed with a wife and three children, Kiichiro believes that he has the ideal home life.
The two men are the same age, but their way of living and thinking are diametrically opposed. One day, they have a shocking first meeting… as “daughter’s boyfriend” and “girlfriend’s father!”
Tamotsu hasn’t had many relations in his own life, so he longs for a family that gets along with each other and even wishes to become a member of the Hanazawa family. On the other hand, his eldest daughter bringing home a boyfriend his own age serves as the trigger for an eruption of problems from his family, which Kiichiro had thought was so perfect. At his wits’ end as a father and a husband, Kiichiro begins to have doubts about the way he has lived his life.
Somehow, before they know it, these two incompatible old men bond with each other and restore a broken family.
