Kota, who works in Tokyo, goes on a snowboarding trip with Momomi, whom he met at a group date.
However, one of the women in the gondola who gets in the same boat turns out to be his fiancée, with whom he lives together.
Hiding his face with goggles and a mask, will he be able to make it to the top of the mountain without being recognized?
Eventually, on a midwinter ski slope, the story develops into a shocking love-hate drama involving several men and women.

Includes a special story, "Near Miss."
