Momoko yearns to live in 18th century Versailles, rather than in her back-country hometown of Shimotsuma. To escape, she loses herself in the dreamy, doll-like fasions of the "Lolita" scene. Her idol is Akinori Isobe, chief designer of Baby, the Stars Shine Bright – her favorite design house – and she frequently travels all the way to Tokyo to shop at the store.
One languid summer, to help fund her expensive hobby, Momoko runs a classified ad offering brand-name knock-off clothes for sale. She encounters a buyer named Ichigo, who happens to live in her neighborbood.
Super-rebel Ichigo is a "Yanki"-style member of the Ponytails motorbike gang, one of Ibaraki's Wild Speed Tribes, whose teeth-rattling customized bikes are decked out with fiberglass shields and bannered backrests.
Somewhat against Momoko's will, she and Ichigo slowly develop a strong friendship as they share their feelings on the odd going-ons around them.
Spoken Languages: Japanese, English subtitles.
