Kidnapped as a child, Keiichiro Tachibana's had trouble coming to terms with the haunting memory. He doesn't remember much, only that the kidnapper forced him to eat sweets. As a way of dealing with his past, Tachnibana decides to open a bakery. But will his choice in staff – a playboy patisserie who's been fired from every job he's ever had, an ex-boxer with a huge sweet tooth, and an absent-minded childhood friend – be a recipe for disaster or success?
