Now that Ira's older sister is getting married, who will take her to the bathroom after ten p.m. and sing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" outside the bathroom door in order to protect her from the beautiful, androgynous, child-eating clown? Will marrying a closeted gay man help? (Source:
Ira believes that if she goes to the bathroom after 10 PM, a beautiful androgynous being will shove her through a meat grinder and eat her. Only her older sister can save her from this fate, but the girl is getting married and moving away soon! Since getting psychiatric help isn't an option due to the upcoming wedding, Ira's best friend Saeko decides that Ira just needs to find a nice boyfriend and everything will straighten itself out. However, the only boyfriend that Ira will accept is a gay man too ashamed to reveal his sexuality. It turns out such a man is pretty hard to find, and after a series of misunderstandings and an intense game of hopscotch, Ira ends up married to Saeko's heterosexual older brother, convinced that he's a closeted homosexual!
