Summer 2020. Pedestrians have begun to return to Tokyo. In one corner of a cafe, a man and woman are taking part in a One Coin English Cafe where participants can casually enjoy English conversation for a small price.
Miki is a woman who tells lies about her work and background while participating in the conversation to satisfy her modest need for approval. Kenji is a young actor who plans to work in the US but is restricted from traveling there.
The two of them hit it off and start playing a game where they visit English conversation cafes and act like different people.
There are two rules to the game.
“Stay out of each other’s life,” and “Don’t lie in Japanese.”
