[ Story ]

Winner of the Lino Brocka Grand Prize and the award for Best Actor (ensemble cast) at the 12th Cinemanila International Film Festival, this film features several protagonists and storylines, played out by professional actors and residents of Hakodate, the city on which the original short story was modeled. Director Kumakiri Kazuyoshi, who boasts a number of international film awards, such as from the Berlin International Film Festival, depicts the bittersweet events in the lives of people in Hakodate, a regional city connected by a streetcar network. A laid-off man (Takehara Pistol) and his younger sister (Tanimura Mitsuki) go up a mountain to see the first sunrise of the year. Meanwhile, Haruo (Kase Ryo) has inherited his family's gas business, but things aren't going well in his new endeavor and he becomes increasingly frustrated.
