Keiko Obayashi is a third year chemistry student in Tokyo. After finding her boyfriend in the bathtub with another student, she takes a train out of Tokyo. She wakes up in rural Masao, where she soon finds a job working in a newly opened convenience store.
Meanwhile, five middle-aged men who run local shops are worried about the competition from the new store, and plan to disrupt it. However, they all fall in love with Keiko as soon as they see her inside the store.
After following her one day, Nabe discovers that she plays lacrosse at the university. The men decide to take up lacrosse in an effort to get a date with her. The film follows them as they practice in secret, are found out by Keiko who agrees to coach them, and finally play a match against a lacrosse team from America who are attracted by the Native American nickname (Geronimo) of one of their players.
