Director Nakano made a theatrical feature debut with a family drama about a single mother Futaba (Rie Miyazawa), whose husband suddenly left a year ago leaving her with their shy daughter, Azumi (Hana Sugisaki). When Futaba is suddenly diagnosed with a terminal illness, she decides to make use of her remaining time to revive the family’s failing bathhouse business and set Azumi on the path to independence.
