Six guys who met at a summer beach bar job stumble upon a letter from Eriko, the girl they all long for. “I heard the beach bar is still there. How about we meet again there on Christmas Eve?” The six all come to the same conclusion: “Eriko is going to choose her man!” and start aggressively competing with each other, despite the fact she is nowhere in sight. Then a stern-looking lawyer, Sekiguchi, appears – only to join their silly competition, confessing, “I love Eriko too.” What kind of miracle can come of this ridiculous battle of love?
