Sato Tomoko is an ordinary housewife who lives with her husband Kohei and young son Shunpei in a cramped housing complex. She has to work part-time to supplement the household income. Nonetheless, they are a loving, happy family. Tomoko wants to live a happier life with small luxuries. She has led a very complicated life up until now. Her parents disappeared one after another.
