After one of their shoplifting sessions, Osamu and his son come
across a little girl in the freezing cold. At first reluctant to shelter the
girl, Osamu’s wife agrees to take care of her after learning of the
hardships she faces. But what first appears to be an easy-going
drama slowly crinkles into something more delicate and profound. A
rich, satisfying film from the director of Our Little Sister.
