Nakajima looks up to his father, who was a war photographer, but can only get a job as an assistant for gravure magazines. Mizuno is a provisional high school teacher, currently on probation. Nishimura is Mizuno’s best friend, whose boyfriend has been avoiding her since she discovered she was pregnant. Ichihara works at a magazine where he is being blackmailed into sexual favours by his chief editor. Park, on Twitter, takes on the persona of a doctor, when he is actually working at a company that sells medical equipment to disinterested doctors, and at the same time, trying to take care of his younger sister.

This is a story about the blossoming friendship of five young people who were brought together by Twitter, and their journey to finding honesty with each other and with themselves.


“Sunao ni Narenakute” revolves around 5 young people who meet in Shibuya, Tokyo through popular microblogging site Twitter.

“Nakaji” (Eita) works as a photographer and follows in the foot steps of his father who also worked as a photographer.

“Haru” (Juri Ueno) is a temporary teacher at a private high school. She is insecure because of her temporary status. Tukiko Mizuno is also in a one-sided love with Nakaji.

“Peach” (Megumi Seki) keeps having an affair with her boss.

“Doctor” (Yeong Woong Jae Jung) is stressed over his bad business dealings.

“Rinda” (Tetsuji Tamayama) works in the glamorous publishing field. He is concerned with his impotence.
