Tsuyako runs a dilapidated ‘love hotel’, renting rooms to couples for short stays. On the roof there is a small park where children and old people gather. Various women come to visit this curious hotel, including a girl with a Polaroid camera, a woman looking for her notebook in which she has recorded the number of steps she makes during her morning walks, and a female graduate who always carries a briefcase. Tsuyako sees through the loneliness of each woman and provides them with unassuming support.
