While combing through the belongings of his recently deceased aunt, nephew Sho (Eita) pieces together the crucial events that sank her life into a sea of bitterness. As a schoolteacher in her youth, Sho's aunt, Matsuko (Miki Nakatani), took the fall for her student's crime. Unable to shake the resulting stigma, she was forced to live on the street and entered into a series of abusive relationships. But a chance at happiness with an old flame gave her a sliver of hope.
