Based on the best-selling manga Love Vibes by Erika Sakurazawa and featuring a soundtrack by James Iha, former guitarist of Smashing Pumpkins, the debut feature of Momoko Andô is a delicately-nuanced portrait of two very different women.

Haru, a college student, is frustrated by the lack of any real spark between her and her slobbish and indifferent boyfriend, who only seems to be interested in her for sex. One day, while brooding over a cappuccino in a cafe, she catches the eye of Riko. Riko joins her table and the two strike up a conversation in which Riko sees in Haru a certain emotional wanting to which she might provide a cure, and the two begin an all-encompassing relationship that draws Haru away from her dissatisfying routine and into a new and more emotionally fulfilling area of her life.
