Toshi-chan and BB live in huts with blue sheets on the banks of the Tama River. Having lived there for several years, they are familiar with the area. The two of them gather cans across town from 4 am in the morning and sleep at 7 pm in order to save money on electricity at night. While they do not have substantial income, they are not particularly concerned about money. They are carefree each day and take pride in being homeless men who can support themselves. Nao, a young female actress from a small theatre company, suddenly shows up at Toshi-chan’s hut one day. She is playing a heroine who has a grand romance with the leader of homeless men in her next performance and wants him to agree to an interview.
