Japanese rock singer Yuya Uchida stars as, not surprisingly, a rock singer named Yuya. He sleeps with a groupie named Megumi (Megumi Saki) after a concert, and she turns out to have been a virgin. This revelation somehow touches Yuya and changes his entire outlook on women and relationships. The rest of his band laughs at him for giving up the traditional rock & roll “hump ’em and dump ’em” ethos, but Yuya decides to enter a committed, monogamous relationship with Megumi and live happily ever after.
