Plot Summary: Momoko is a girl who cares for nothing but frilly lace dresses and wishes she was in 18th century rococo France rather than dorky Shimotsuma. It's a backwater to which her Yakuza father has fled, and populated by small towners with no sense for elegant fashion. What can a girl do but dismiss everybody around her as not worthy and instead indulge her whims in Tokyo's specialty stores... Then biker girl Ichiko arrives like a barbarian at the gate and does her confused best to turn Momoko's life upside down. Despite professed indifference both are curious about, even a bit jealous of, the other's lifestyle. Slowly a bond starts to form between them but when tested it is less than clear if it has grown strong enough to tear down Momoko's frilly fence.
