[ Story ]

Producer Kameyama Chihiro and director Motohiro Katsuyuki, the pair who created the popular Bayside Shakedown (Odoru Daisousasen The Movie) series, have come together again to portray the spiritual interaction among people who love "udon" - Japanese wheat noodles. The film introduces a gastronomic culture unique to Japan through the medium of udon.
Matsui Kosuke (Yusuke Santamaria) goes to New York, dreaming to become a first-class comedian. However, his dream ends up falling by the wayside, and he returns to his hometown in Kagawa Prefecture laden with debts. As he rebelled against his father, claiming that a country town holds no dreams for him and struck out to travel abroad, Kosuke is ashamed to show his face to his father who has carried on making udon diligently at his udon factory. Kosuke's best friend, Shosuke (Tortoise Matsumoto), introduces him to a job at the town's information magazine, and Kosuke takes it up in order to clear his debts. He puts together a column for Sanuki Udon, a specialty in Kagawa Prefecture, and this triggers an unprecedented udon craze. The festive excitement dies down after a while and people go back to their usual routines. Kosuke, however, regains his confidence from the boom, and leaves for America, chasing his dream once more.
