Synopsis for Shiro Seijo to Kuro Bokushi:
Lawrence lives on the outskirts of a quiet town and works as a local pastor for the townspeople. When he is in need, he is responsible for leading people to church to visit the «Saint,» a symbol of good morals who listens to the struggles of each parishioner and gives them candid advice.
Cecilia, a kind young woman, is tasked with fulfilling this role; however, this tedious job exhausts her quickly. That, along with her sleepy nature hidden from her, often causes her to loaf around church, resulting in Lawrence being left in charge of the church alone. While Cecilia sleeps in anticipation of her next visitor, Lawrence attends to her needs, as well as fulfilling the many responsibilities of the church.
Slowly but surely, they begin to form a comfortable and trusting friendship with each other. Lawrence accepts Cecilia’s laid-back nature, while she grows accustomed to Lawrence’s overly caring nature. However, as the adoring and distracted saint’s feelings for the dense and overly protective shepherd progress beyond friendship, how will she respond?
