As a student, Hiroshi aspired to be an actor but he now finds himself only ever getting cast as dead bodies. Even so, his passion for acting has yet to fade, and no matter how small the role, he dedicates himself to portraying dead bodies as realistically as possible. However, his performances are always over-the-top, and he has gained a reputation for being difficult to work with.
After drowning his sorrows in drink, he calls an escort agency which promises to supply “neat and cute female students from prestigious universities”. The girl who turns up at his apartment has pink hair, and calls herself “Kana”.
One day, Kana, who has been beaten by her boyfriend after telling him she was pregnant, turns up at his apartment asking for help. To protect her, Hiroshi uses his skill at portraying dead bodies to deceive her boyfriend.
