friend from his past arrives unexpectedly. Yasaka, recently released from
prison, is offered work and a room in Toshio's home. Toshio soon regrets this
decision, as his life with his wife and daughter is disrupted by Yasaka's
presence. Director Koji Fukada sees this film as a companion piece to his
earlier film Hospitalite.
