[ Story ]

Debut project from Foolish Piggies Films, the Tochigi Prefecture-based filmmaking collective formed primarily by director/scriptwriter Watanabe Hirobumi and his brother Watanabe Yuji, who handles production. Humorously depicts the encounter between a mysterious girl and a self-centered thirtysomething slacker.
Hirayama Takashi (Shibukawa Kiyohiko) lives with his grandmother (Hirayama Misao) in Otawara City, Tochigi Prefecture. An unemployed slacker with zero interest in changing his dissipated and lazy lifestyle, Takashi spends his days doing next to nothing. One day, a girl shows up who claims to be the daughter of his deceased father.
