7 day love story of a beautiful cicada prince and a post prime woman in her 30’s.

A cicada was born in the garden of Utsusemi-So apartment in the outskirts of Tokyo. The cicada shouts “Finally, I made it!” and emerges from the ground – but at that very moment, he sees a woman falling toward him. The cicada accepts his death, but she manages to avoid him. Her name is Yuka, an ordinary woman around thirty, who happens to live in Utsusemi-So.

The cicada sees loneliness in her face, and decides to become a human to grant her wish as a token of his gratitude for sawing his life.

Yuka has no idea why she is living together with this boy, and as the cicada boy knows nothing about the human world, Yuka is surprised by his strange words and behaviors. But his never-ending wish to make her happy makes her fall in love with this prince-like cicada boy. However, once above the ground, a cicada has only seven days to live….
