A jaded screenwriter mines the stories of women seeking advice for their love challenges in order to gain material for her own cynical work. A strange man named Ito, who we only meet third-hand through much of the series, is the common thread and is formative to all the women's lives.
This is a strange and unique form of story-telling, with five intriguing, interwoven stories that fall into lock-step nicely by the end. Nothing is as it seems. There is an unsettled feel, where the characters don't necessarily get what they had set out thinking they wanted, but end up with something important nonetheless. Well worth the watch. Filled with solid acting. A good, thought provoking story.
