During the week, Miyuki goes to her office job in Iwaki in eastern Japan. But on the weekends, she goes to Tokyo to live a different life — as a prostitute. At home, the Fukushima nuclear accident casts its shadow over people's lives; Miyuki and her father are suffering from their losses, as is a co-worker of Miyuki's, who tries to help people on a daily basis but who himself is in need of even more help. Each of them finds a different ways of dealing with the trauma until the day may come when a silver lining reveals itself.
