Story

Hiroshi returns from school to find the family furniture lined up outside their door and his way barred by a property seizure notice. His elder brother Kenichi (Akihiro Nishino) joins him to stand dumbstruck in front of the yellow tape. Their sister Sachiko (Chizuru Ikewaki) on the verge of tears, asks them what they should do. After a while their father, he launches into an official speech: “As you may see, it is with regret that I must inform you we are no longer able to enter our home. It is difficult situation but I wish you all the best in your future endeavors. You are dismissed. “He then turns his back on his kids and pedals off.

Abandoned by the rest of their relatives for their father’s profligate borrowing, the kids realize they have nowhere to go. As his elder brother and sister begin to panic, Hiroshi stubbornly claims that he’ll be fine on his own. With that, he runs off, a smile on his face.

He fetches up at a nearby park. Curling up inside a weird turd-shaped children’s side, his alternative lifestyle is about to begin.
