Suzume Katakura is an ordinary housewife. Her husband has been sent overseas on business, and although he phones her regularly, he is more concerned with the health and welfare of his pet turtle. The days pass monotonously, it is as though no one pays her any attention, not even her husband.

The ordinariness of he life is interrupted one day when she spots a flyer in a stairway advertising for spies. Intrigued, Suzume phones the number. Three days later she is instructed to go to a run down apartment. she is greeted by a man and woman, he is unemployed; she is a shopping mall announcer.
