But, Shoko Ishida failed her bar exam 4 times. She was afraid she would fail for the 5th time and gave up on the bar exam. She now works as a paralegal at a law office run by her father Wataro Ishida. She also lives with her father. Shoko Ishida is a thrifty person who doesn’t tolerate even a little bit of waste.

Meanwhile, Yoshio Haneoka (Tomoya Nakamura) is a 34-year-old single man. He graduated from high school in Japan and enrolled at a university in the United States. He dropped out of the university after one semester and traveled all over the United States. He has a special ability that he can remember everything he sees, like looking at a photo in his head. Due to his special memory, he was able to easily past the bar exam on his first try. He cares what other people think about. He also admires genius lawyers who are not stereotypical in their ways.

One day, Yoshio Haneoka meets Wataro Ishida and he begins to work with him at his law office. Shoko Ishida and Yoshio Haneoka, who are totally different from each other, soon begin to work together at Wataro Ishida’s law office and challenge each other as they grow as people.
