17-year-old Urara has no friends – her only pleasure is reading Boys Love (BL) manga. Working part-time at a book shop, she meets Yuki, an elderly woman who has lived alone since the death of her husband.
Yuki is also a fan of BL manga, and despite the age difference, the pair develop an unlikely friendship based on their shared interest.
A heart-warming story about the intergenerational bond between two lonely women.
