Plot Synopsis by DramaWiki Staff ©

Saburo is a director of commercials. After working at an advertising agency, he struck out on his own and became a creator of commercials, concert choreography and song lyrics. At 28, he met Masako who was used as a campaign girl for a cosmetics commercial which he was in charge of. They dated for seven years and got married. However, his beloved wife died slightly over a year into their marriage. In the autumn of 1986, one year following Masako’s death, Saburo’s heart aches from despair and sorrow, and he is distressed by repeated hallucinations. In an attempt to shake this off, he indulges in gambling and alcohol and is on the road to destruction. Saburo is about to return to his hometown of Yamaguchi after selling the apartment which he had lived with Masako, when he is told by mahjong buddy and comic artist Kurokami that there is someone he wants him to meet. Saburo is brought to a bar in a back alley of Shinjuku. The person sleeping in the innermost seat in the dimly-lit bar is Sensei, a Naoki Prize-winning author nicknamed the “god of gambling”. Sensei immediately takes Saburo and Kurokami to a seedy Chinese restaurant when he wakes up, gobbles up the ramen and gyoza, and sleeps again. In fact, Sensei suffers from narcolepsy. Saburo has been charmed by Sensei’s personality and feels a strange sense of relief. Several days later, Kurokami and Saburo are called to his house to play mahjong with the famous musician Ino. Saburo is happy and excited to play with the “god of gambling”. But that night... ~~ Based on novel by Shizuka Ijuin.
