Kore-eda Hirokazu, director of After Life, launched the "Kore-eda Project", under which he produced Kakuto, directed by Iseya Yusuke. This is Kore-eda's second film as producer, and the directorial debut of 28-year-old, rising talent Nishikawa Miwa.
Shuji (Miyasako Hiroyuki), who's been gone for years, suddenly returns to the Akechi family home. After his arrival the ordinary, but happy family is thrown into chaos. Grandfather dies, father has tons of debts, and younger sister Tomoko (Tsumiki Miho) breaks up with her fiancé, blaming it on Shuji's lies. Her big brother once told her a lie when they were small, about a secret place where wild berries could be found. Shuji tells her it was not a lie, and even takes her to the place. On the way there, Tomoko runs away from Shuji and calls the police. She knows Shuji is a con man and decides to sell out her own brother to the police. When she arrives back at home, she finds the dining room table covered with wild berries.
