In a Japanese port town, Tatsuo Sato (Go Ayano), a traumatized man, spends his days drifting aimlessly and his nights drinking himself to oblivion. Whiling his hours away at a pachinko parlor, he meets Takuji Ohshiro (Masaki Suda), a young man on parole who impulsively invites him to a shabby house on the outskirts of town. There, Tatsuo glimpses Takuji’s bedridden father and callous mother, and meets his world-weary older sister Chinatsu Ohshiro (Chizuru Ikewaki). While immediately drawn to each other, romance is an unaffordable luxury for the emotionally closed-off Tatsuo and the disillusioned Chinatsu, who sells herself to provide for her family and keep her brother out of jail. As Tatsuo and Chinatsu take tentative steps towards a relationship, the happy-go-lucky Takuji latches onto Tatsuo, binding their fates. Each step they take to build a better life sets off a chain of actions that have devastating consequences.

Amane (Kazuya Takahashi) is a regular office worker who is bored with life. His girlfriend Juri (Natsue Yoshimura) pressures him to continue the relationship to the next level. However, he is not happy in their relationship. One day as he is driving he hits a woman who was walking on the road. She is taken to the hospital where she eventually recovers. Guilty of what he's done, Amane tells her to let him repay him for the accident, but she declines and disappears from the hospital. Obsessed, he finally finds her one night at a nightclub and learns that her name is Hanabusa. He also learns that the nightclub is for transvestites and that Hanabusa (Kumiko Takeda) is a hermaphrodite. Amane is disgusted at first, but goes along with it the rest of the night. Amane still wants to see Hanabusa and they have sex one night. Hanabusa shows Amane on how to be the perfect partner in sex both on top and bottom. Satisfied with this, Amane breaks up with Juri and both Hanabusa and Amane fall in love. Juri is upset and tries to confront Hanabusa, but ends up sleeping with her through the night. The next morning, Juri (while having enjoyed that she slept with Hanabusa) is even more angry at Amane and has sex with one of his co-workers, Takayanagi (Kunihiko Ida). Meanwhile, Amane and Hanabusa drive to Amane's hometown and purposes that they would meet his family. However, Hanabusa tells him to pull over. Amane is confused by this and states that he want to take their relationship to the next level. Hanabusa does not want to and suggest that they break up. Amane confronts her and angrily states that there is no place for someone like her. She responds by telling him to run over her again. They sit silently in the car, as Amane is trying to start the car. But is angry and upset at all this and tells Hanabusa that he is lonely and desperately in love with her. Hanabusa says that they should just end their relationship. Takayanagi later reveals to Amane that he slept with Juri half-way and suggests that he and Juri make-up. But Amane tells him that he is better off not seeing her or Hanabusa. But in reality, he is more depressed and alone. The next morning, Hanabusa is walking and finds Amane sitting in the snow. He gives back the heel from one of her shoes and leaves. But Hanabusa stops him and realizes that they should be lovers and mend their relationship. Then, Juri finds out that her period is late and uses this as a way to get back together with Amane and tries to push him into marrying her. However, Amane and Hanabusa believes she is lying, which makes her upset and she leaves. She later leaves a message on his voice-mail, threatening to commit suicide by drug overdose, blaming Amane for leaving her and pleading to him to come back to her one more time. The last scene in the film is Hanabusa and Amane visiting a now comatose Juri in the hospital. Amane says that all of this is ending, while Hanabusa remarks that it is not the end, but just the beginning.
