Those who struggle to live in this modern society meet and interact with other people, and they begin to change. They hurt each other, but accept and fit to each other. This film offers hope for those who have lost their way.


Before leaving for work, Sagawa stares at himself in a suit in the mirror and talks to himself ebulliently, just like a teacher cheering on a pupil. His obsession to do something for others leads him to create a hero, but others see him as a suspicious individual and he is backed into a corner. Around the same time, a clumsy bunch of people, Kawakami, Sagawa's colleague, Ohki, a new recruit, Nitta, his client and obsessive complainer, Tahara, who was dating Sagawa's friend, and Masaru, his brother, begin to rely on other 'humans' to escape their own loneliness and suffering. Knowing it is not just happiness and joy that lie ahead, the way they still rely on human nature, that people cannot live alone, is comical but consummately beautiful.
