Fisherman Manzo (Shinya Kote) is very lonely, failing to hook up even at flirt parties. Then the incredible happens: Kanzo discovers the beautiful Mitsuko (Yuko Miyamoto) and her son Masao hiding in his kitchen cupboard. Where do they come from? Manzo is not converned. He falls head over heels in love with the mysterious stranger. But Mitsuko’s gratitude for a place to stay does not change to love… A quirky melancholic comedy, artistically independent and visually innovative.
