In the first story, Mitsuki Tanimura plays a college student named Nozomi who has been busy searching for a job. Back home, Nozomi had been nicknamed “Noro”, short for “noroma” (gullible, slow-witted), but now she’s living in Tokyo where everyone seems to run around like rabbits. She and her boyfriend Kameyama (Kensuke Owada) have been living at the same slow pace, but Nozomi feels that starting to change…

In the second story, Megumi Yanagi plays Saeko, a young woman who works in the advertising industry. In contrast to her busy life, her roommate and sister Kaori Shuri is a part-time worker who spends her days lounging around. Saeko has a boyfriend named Tomoya (Naoki Kawano) who she recently met at work. On the one-year anniversary of their relationship, she answers his cell phone and hears a woman’s voice.
