Keito and Sachiko are nervous.
Keito has come to dinner, to meet Sachiko’s parents and seek their blessings for their marriage.
Sachiko’s dad is the overprotective dad, who wants to leave no stone unturned when it comes to making sure his daughter’s choice is the right one.
Over a meal of shabu-shabu, he puts Keito under the microscope. From his manners to his body language. From his food choices to his knowledge of Japanese traditions — everything is under scrutiny.
Keito passes every little test with flying colours. He’s perfect. Too perfect, in fact.
But the last few questions do him in. All his secrets come tumbling out.
