Inaba Mitsuo’s hobby is role playing games. When he was a teenager, his father Hirotaro had taken him to buy Final Fantasy III and these became his few precious memories of having his father play with him. He is now a grown-up and a salesman of office machines. One day, he gets a phone call from his mother, informing him that his father, who had lived for work, has suddenly resigned. She is apparently unconcerned about his slightly early retirement. Mitsuo realises that he does not know anything about his father in a casual conversation with a colleague Hakamada Takahiro. Worried about his father who has grown aloof in his behaviour, Mitsuo gifts him a Play Station 4 to celebrate his retirement and invites him into the world of online games through Final Fantasy XIV. Despite his puzzled look, Hirotaro creates a character called Indy and gradually gets hooked on the game. Mitsuo has already been playing the game with the character name Maidy and tries to reach out to his father without disclosing his true identity. Despite the secrets that each of them have, father and son start to understand each other and become them closer through the online games.
