DRAMA:  Sentaro’s [ Masatoshi Nagase ] life is one of loss and confectionary. He runs a small bakery that serves dorayakis (pastries filled with sweet red bean paste “an”) then one day he meets his match. When an old lady, Tokue [ Kirin Kiki ], offers to help in the kitchen he reluctantly accepts. But Tokue proves to have magic in her hands when it comes to making “an”.  Thanks to her secret recipe, the little business soon flourishes and with time, Sentaro and Tokue are forced to work through their respective feelings of loss and resignation and open their hearts to repair old wounds.
