Wataru Hirayama outwardly liberal views on marriage are severely tested when his daughter declares that she is in love with a musician and is adamant to lead life her own way, instead of agreeing to an arranged marriage. Outwitted by his female relatives, Hirayama stubbornly refuses to admit defeat.
