Take Seiji (Ninomiya Kazunari) is a 25-year-old freeter with no dreams, savings and is good-for-nothing. He had failed his entrance exams the first time and entered a third-rate university a year later. After graduation, he found work at a mid-size components company, but could not become accustomed to the corporate culture and left in three months. Reemployment did not go his way, so he took a part-time job for the time being. However, when interpersonal relationship become a little bit bothersome, he would immediately quit and move to another part-time job. As a result, he is always fighting with his father, Seiichi. He retreats into his own room because he hates seeing his father.
Then one day, when he is both out of work and savings, he learns that his mother, Sumiko, is suffering from depression, and is shocked. Harsh reality surges in … Is he to be the family’s breadwinner now? Thinking he is good-for-nothing and blaming himself for not being able to take care of even food expenses, Seiji takes up higher-paying part-time manual labour at a civil engineering site where he encounters the vivacious, cheerful Chiba Manami (Karina) and his superiors. At first, he has a bias against his job, regarding it only as a temporary position, and keeps his distance from the people at the work place. But his exchanges with his colleagues and Manami, who live for civil engineering, gradually deepen. In the midst of this he is reminded of the meaning of “life” and “work, and finds hope to revive his family.
Maruyama will play Nino’s co-worker whose failed dream was to debut in a band, and Yokoo’s role is as a lawyer who lives next to Nino’s house.
I've been waiting for a very long time for another Nino's appearance in TV Doramas.
And I am very excited for his role in this drama.
