Workshop owner Toshio (Furutachi) lives contentedly with his wife Akie (Tsutsui) and ten-year-old-daughter Hotaru (Shinokawa), a lively girl who struggles to master the harmonium.

Life goes on for the three of them, until Toshio hires the mysterious Mr. Yasaka (Asano), an old friend who has recently been released from prison.

As Yasaka becomes more open about his past, a buried secret threatens to sully Toshio’s good name and sever familial ties.

A beautifully crafted film, with strong performances from both the experienced adult cast and young Shinokawa.
