Commercial ads director Hakota Yuko makes her theatrical film debut with this original work. In the lead role is Kaho of Our Little Sister. The film won the Best Film and Best Director awards in the Asian New Talents category of the 22nd Shanghai International Film Festival.
Sunada (Kaho) is a capable 30-year-old commercial ads director with a demanding personality. She returns to the hometown from which she had stayed away until then in order to visit her grandmother. Coming along with her is Sunada's close friend Kiyoura (Shim Eun-Kyung) who always appears when Sunada is in a bind. On this journey to the hometown she despises, Sunada's hardened heart will gradually soften.
