An old couple in a humble apartment need geriatric care. Kimiko, the wife, is exhausted with caring and poverty, but the mismatch of her Osaka-style gaudy clothes and lifestyle creates a curious charm and her determination shines in adversity.


Kimiko is busy caring for her husband who has recently being fitted with artificial anus. Their debts are increasing, but the disability makes him increasingly dependent on her. Despite occasional grumbles, Kimiko cheerfully and devotedly continues to care for him, until one night the strain, the debt and disapproval of other people get the better of her and she attempts to strangle him. Her husband, who cannot usually even walk without her help, manages to fight her off, and Kimiko dashes out of the house to contain her emotions. She meets a runaway girl in a park, and talks to her admonishingly as if to herself, as she identifies with the girl who has fled home just like her, but also with the mother of this head-strong girl.
