[ Story ]

Drama focusing on agriculture in Japan. Warmly depicts the passion of people involved in organically grown green tea, while touching on agricultural policy in the countryside. The magnificent landscape of Oita Prefecture in southern Japan, where the film is set, also lends emotional gravity to the film.
Kinjiro (Jinnai Takanori), an official with the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, is a good-natured fellow who goes around the country helping farm families. At his new appointment in Usuki City, Oita Prefecture, he visits a tea-growing family he has known for a long time. There, he finds the family head's granddaughter Minori (Tanaka Lena), who lost her job in Tokyo and has just returned home.
