To make matters worse, Akari’s father who is a doctor has to move to Sapporo while her boyfriend, Susumu leaves for France to pursue his classic guitar training. Father’s job banned all pets from living in the employees’residence, but seeing how lonely Akari was, father decides to give up his well-paying job. Time passes and Susumu returns from his studies abroad while Akari too graduates from college and leaves for a job at a zoo located in a city far from home.‘Socks’is now old and facing death, but no before he plays a bridge role between Akari and Susumu falling in love.
