[ Story ]

The first commercial work by director Ishii Yuya, who gained great recognition at film festivals all over the country for Bare-assed Japan (Mukidashi Nippon), winner of the 2007 Pia Film Festival Grand Prize. Highly appraised for her eye-opening performance in Love Exposure (Ai no mukidashi), Mitsushima Hikari passionately plays the role of a gutsy heroine who crawls her way up from rock bottom. Sawako (Mitsushima) has gone through life taking a halfhearted approach to her career and her love life. One day, she unexpectedly inherits her father's clam factory. Not only is she pushed around by the employees and by her boyfriend, the factory is also on the verge of bankruptcy.
