52-year-old Tsukumo Sakura runs Tsukumodo, a secondhand bookstore which stands alone in the Ota district of Tokyo. People of all generations visit this shop which revolves around manga. At the back of the bookstore is a room called Tamariba. It is a place where Sakura offers free oyakodon to hungry people with nowhere to go. It fills stomachs and also seems to warm hearts. With their hunger satisfied, these people “with nowhere to go” slowly start to talk to her about themselves and she listens to them. Sometimes she encourages them with a smile. At other times, she cries with them. She loves to say “It’s all right to cry when you want to. The teardrops that fall will simply burst into flowers of happiness.” A teenage girl Ninomiya Azami who has left home, has been misbehaving with Masaki Rie and others every day. One night, Azami and Rie take refuge in a park after being pursued by gangsters. Hunger drives Azami to Tamariba which Rie had heard is a place where oyakodon can be eaten for free. People slightly marginalised by society such as Kimizuka Tatsuya who has been working hard for the sake of his younger sister after coming out of a juvenile correctional institution, Tamaki Gen who is good at drawing but has difficulty communicating, delinquent and socially reclusive youths hang out there. Sakura serves oyakodon to Azami and Rie without poking and prying deeply despite their sudden visit. The two girls voraciously eat the meal which has been made with love. However, Sakura firmly rejects them when they request to stay for a night because they have no place to go. Moved by the delightful oyakodon, Azami strikes a defiant attitude but frequents Tamariba. One day, she begins to talk to Tatsuya about her background. When she was a year old, her mother was almost murdered and a high school student waiter who intervened was killed. Sakura who had been casually listening to Azami’s story, stands in daze. In fact, Sakura’s son had died after getting involved in an incident. How will she react to this encounter with Azami which one can describe as a twist of fate?
