Akiko is a Tokyo student who moonlights as a call girl. When she is dispatched to a new client in the suburbs, she is surprised to find the shy and elderly Takashi, a committed academic constantly distracted by work-related phone calls. The lonely widower seems far more interested in playing house than having sex and Akiko soon falls asleep. The next day, when the two encounter Akiko's volatile boyfriend Noriaki, the old man goes along with Noriaki's assumption that he is Akiko's grandfather, and as the three settle into their new roles, Takashi finds himself becoming the protector that Akiko so desperately needs.
