Story

A powerful and beautiful 60-year-old woman fixes problems and crushes injustice in this thrilling and entertaining show.

Izumi Kikuchi is 38, single, works in a small publisher, and has great anxiety about her ten-year long affair with a married man. One day she meets Haruko Nakajima, the manager of a popular cosmetic clinic. Though now single at 60 with two divorces under her belt, Haruko is known as a top-class cosmetic doctor in the highest echelons of the public and private sectors. And she hates waste. If someone’s got a problem that comes from their needless pride, she’s tearing through it with her sharp wit and merciless quips.

One day, Izumi is invited by Haruko to a luxurious party attended by celebrities, where she runs into mistress of the young investor hosting the party! Face to face with a woman who’s been in an affair with a man for over ten years, and even going as far as to act like his wife, Izumi feels her heart ache at their similar plight. Haruko, however, pays no mind to her friend’s worries and roars at the woman, drawing the party’s attention.

“You’re just a mistress. Don’t throw your weight around! How about you act the part and try on some modesty?!” Haruko lectures the woman, then turns her barbs to the investor. “And you’re the one who’s encouraging her!”

“At the end of the day, you know who you can blame when your life falls apart? Yourself. Not that that’s any of my business.”

A confectioner troubled by who will take over the shop, a woman having difficulty finding a husband due to her high education, a rich housewife stressed out by her husband…people gather around Haruko one after another, each with a different problem! And whenever someone comes to her with their troubles, Haruko tears them apart with her signature scathing remarks. For some reason, the lives of the people she rips into get much better! Get ready to see this queen rend through the troubles of the world in a storm of catharsis!
