Based on the best-selling manga Love Vibes by Erika Sakurazawa and featuring a soundtrack by James Iha, former guitarist of Smashing Pumpkins.

This debut feature from Momoko Andô, is a delicately-nuanced portrait of two very different women: Haru, a college student, is frustrated by the lack of any real spark with her slob of a boyfriend (who seems to be interested in her only for sex) and Riko, a stranger who joins her table at a coffee shop.

The two of them strike up a conversation. Haru might be physically intact, Riko sees in her a certain emotional wanting to which she might provide a cure, and the two begin an all-encompassing relationship that draws Haru away from her dissatisfying routine and into a new and more emotionally fulfilling area of her life.
