An official selection of the 24th Tokyo International Film Festival's Japanese Eyes section and numerous other film festivals. Filmmaker Yamasaki Junichiro, who is also involved in farming in Okayama Prefecture's Maniwa City, depicts the struggles of a young dairy farmer and his relationships with his lover and his family.
After living in Tokyo and pursuing a career in music, Yusuke (Fujihisa Yoshitomo) returns to his hometown in the north of Okayama Prefecture to help with his family's farm after his father is injured. However, he finds himself unable to give up on his music dreams, and is troubled by the realities of farming and discord with his girlfriend Yoko (Mori Eri), causing him to question his new life as a dairy farmer.
