Reeling from betrayal at the hands of his lover, who left him in incredible debt, Ryouichi finds himself aimlessly wandering in the midst of a storm. Suddenly finding himself standing at the door of a teahouse, he goes in, and soon becomes indebted to the owner. Helping out around the shop to pay back the owner's kindness, Ryouichi discovers that he's looking forward to work, and not just to pay back the debt, either. Has Ryouichi found where he belongs?
