A peek into the relationship between a mother and a daughter is our introduction to this manga on the various roles and relationships women have, including: - A widow who marries a man three years younger than her daughter, - A woman who goes through matchmaking only to come to a surprising conclusion, - A girl who keeps falling for the wrong type of man, and three young girls' aspirations and what happens to them... Yukiko, a salarywoman in her thirties, still lives with her mother Mari. But their relationship suffers a sudden change when Mari announces that she’s getting married—to an ex-host and aspiring actor who’s younger than Yukiko. Yukiko, convinced he’s out to fleece her mom, can’t stand to stay in the house and decides to move in with her boyfriend. Fumi Yoshinaga weaves together the lives of Yukiko, a thirty something salary woman, and her friends in five short stories, exploring the various relationships women have with all the skill and elegance she is known for.
