[ Story ]

A warm-hearted comedy set in Kamagasaki, Osaka which is recognized as Japan's largest neighborhood of day laborers. Sato Leo of Nagai Park Elegy photographs the atmosphere of the actual area, shooting on 16mm film entirely on location in Kamagasaki.
One day, the "ceremonial cauldron" marked with the crest of the Kamatari yakuza gang controlling the Tobita red light district is stolen. The Kamatari begin buying up all the cauldrons around town which drives up the prices of cauldrons. Jinkichi (Kawase Yota) is a burglar who jumps at this get-rich-quick scheme but one day is reacquainted with the gang's successor Tamao (Shibukawa Kiyohiko).
