Izumi has lost his sister in a car accident. Fukushima, an old man, draws portraits. Takashi is a pupil in primary school and his mother, Chie, earns her living in the sex trade. It is the story of four people who are linked by a “chair” in the course of a summer. In this film we find all the themes which will animate the later films of Koki Fukada. This is his first work, which he produced by himself, and made when he was 21 years old.
