Suzu Yukimiya (Yuriko Yoshitaka) is a 35-year-old woman who works as an obstetrician and gynecologist. She had to put every ounce of her heart into her studies – only for everything to end in disappointment. She was forced to leave her first big job at a major hospital because of a lawsuit. Now she has come to a small seaside town to work in a local clinic. Her days quickly become mundane, and she becomes frustrated with her life. To escape the drudgery, one day she decides to go camping – alone. She is enjoying drinking alone and looking at the stars in the night sky when she notices a handsome young man named Issei Hiiragi (Takumi Kitamura). The man takes pictures of her, drinks her sake – and then kisses her. She later learns that Issei Hiiragi is deaf, and they part. But fate brings them together again a few days later. Could love bloom between this despondent doctor and a man 10 years her junior? “On A Starry Night” is a 2023 Japanese drama series that was directed by Fukagawa Yoshihiro and Yamamoto Daisuke.
