Daikichi is a 30-year old bachelor who goes to his grandfather's funeral and discovers that the family patriarch has fathered a 6-year old girl. With Rin's mother nowhere to be found, the family argues about the now orphaned child's fate. Disgusted by his family's reluctance to care for Rin, Daikichi volunteers to be her guardian, without realizing what it means to be a single parent.
