Four women are dwelling in a large city: a high-school student with an odor fetish; an “office lady” who drinks to blow off steam and doesn’t have much luck with men; a housewife with a gloomy smoker husband; an elderly woman who likes bizarre murder mysteries. Each suffocating in her own way, they persevere while enjoying their own little secrets and pleasures. We see the ordinary lives of these women, who are in some ways quite strange but also somehow endearing and impossible to dislike.
