Synopsis
Based on Naoki Award winner Kiyoshi Sigematsu's best seller, the reunited team of 'Crying Out Love, in the Center of the World' and 'JIN' present a story of ultimate family love.

The story is about 30 years in the life of a stubborn and pugnacious 'Idiot' who truly loves his son and tries so hard to raise him with support from the people around.

It starts in 1998 with Akira working for a publishing company, trying to come up with good ideas for a supplement to a student book while looking at a picture of his father Yasu.

It then goes back to 1972, when a truck driver Yasu and his wife Misako finally have a long-awaited baby. The couple named the baby Akira and started to enjoy the sort of family life they could not in their parent-less childhood. Three years later, however, an unexpected incident occurs when Misako visits Yasu's place of work with Akira.

Oh this drama. Ohhhh this drama. Prepare a few boxes of tissues if you're planning on watching. It's a really fantastic story. Yasu is the most insanely awesome father I've seen in a drama for a while now. The entire cast supporting him to raise Akira happen to be some of the best characters I've encountered of my years of watching dramas.

Highly recommended.

Quit after 6. 2nd 3rd 6th episodes lame. 4th slightly touching. 40mins of annoying (Uchino) + 5min nice ending = I've had enough. That's what you get every episode.

Probably the best of the 'single parent' genre. Uchino unforgettable as Yasu and great work by Akira Emoto and Yumi Aso as well.

A bit of over acting but the positive messages and very good narration make this drama very good. Worth watching!
