40-year-old Usui Arata had worked as a salesperson for her dream company but right before her marriage, she is betrayed by her fiance. Not only is her engagement broken off, she is demoted to work at the logistics warehouse in the name of restructuring. Arata’s future is bleak. She has no dream, savings or boyfriend and wonders whether her life will end just like this? This day is her 40th birthday but no one celebrates it with her. The only thing she receives are emails from online shopping sites. On her way to the workplace from the company dormitory on a typical dull morning, Arata notices an elderly woman crouching by the side of the road. There is no one in this corner of the city to help her. It feels as if she is seeing herself 40 years later and she instinctively extends a hand to the woman. Arata has no way of knowing that this encounter will dramatically change her life later on. There are some unwelcome events awaiting her at the workplace. When she and Muraki Mika, a colleague who was also seconded to the warehouse, are attending the morning assembly, they are introduced to the new section chief by Hamada Sumire, the team leader of the Warehouse Department. He is none other than Maezono Makoto, the man who broke off the engagement. She is rendered speechless when he thoughtlessly tells her that they must be fated to meet like this again. On her way back, a stressed Arata happens to find the retro bar Old Jack & Rose’s poster recruiting hostesses. The condition is that applicants have to be over 40. Arata thinks this is a trap and cannot believe the hourly wage of 2,000 yen for a hostess. However, she decides to take the plunge and work here in a bid to change her life. She soon gets shocked by the difference in values. The average age of the hostesses at Old Jack & Rose is over 70. Taking the name Arara, she blossoms and begins to recover the important things that she had forgotten, as the youngest hostess in a space brimming with the vitality and energy of mature women.
