Kanbara Tokiko is a radio personality with a very popular weekly segment where listeners consult her about their problems. However, Tokiko also has a problem of her own – her father Tetsuya who is her only immediate family. Now in his 70s, Tetsuya is a charmer and quite an extraordinary character while strong-willed Tokiko is in her mid 40s and still single. At one point, the interactions between father and daughter were so strained whenever they saw each other that they were on the verge of breaking off ties. However, they now meet from time to time for a meal outside. One day, Tokiko decides to write an essay about her father. To gather materials for this essay, she listens to his recollections of the family each time they meet. However, these are not all pleasant memories – the encounter with her late mother, the loss of his entire fortune and the shadow cast by the other woman … … Tokiko depicts her love and hatred for her father and the two sides of her family.
