A moving story of 78-year-old Kenzaburo, who comes back to his home town from 50 years of absence. He takes a roadtrip to keep an old promise with his band men.


An old man comes back to his hometown after 50 years of absence, to re-unite his jazz band to play in a prestigious jazz club. In order to do that, he needs to take a road trip with his grandson, who did not know he had a grandfather in his life. The jazz-crazed grandson is played by Ryouhei Suzuki (Surely Someday), one of the most watched young actors in twenties, joining the veteran actor Ichiro Zaitsu, playing the stubborn trumpeter grandfather. Also, Sadao Watanabe, the legendary saxophone player joins the cast, making this film a rhythmical and deeply moving story.
