Plot Summary: With a good education, a good job, intelligence, and good looks, Iwaya Sumire is an "elite" who seems to have it all. Tension builds up at her workplace as her achievements, her professional attitude, and her determination alienate her co-workers and her boyfriend, but her life takes an unexpected turn when she finds a young man in a box outside her apartment building. She looks after him, and even allows him to stay with her, on the condition that he become Momo, her "pet", being cared for but having no human rights. Soon after, an old flame that she's still smitten with returns to Japan and is showing interest in her, but her "pet" is also starting to demand more attention, as the bond between them becomes stronger. Sumire is a strong, modern Japanese woman caught in between society's expectations of womanhood, her own ideals about love relationships, and the reality of her feelings. Ultimately, she must decide what sort of love she is looking for and what sort of person she can be.
