Twelve-year-old Koichi ends up with his mother Nozomi (Nene Ohtsuka), and they move in with her parents in a small village where she gets a job at a supermarket. Koichi’s younger brother Ryunosuke, meanwhile, moves in with his dad Kenji (Joe Odagiri), a struggling musician who can’t hold on to a day job.
