A young couple determined to build their dream home finds that accomplishing their lifelong goal is even more difficult than they ever could have imagined when their visionary plans are constantly questioned by their ultra-conservative elder in director Koki Mitani's quirky family comedy. Some say that a home reflects the person who built it, and Naosuke and Tomiko are an imaginative young couple who have always longed for something a little bit different in life. Upon procuring the talents of unlicensed architect Mr. Yanagisawa, an eccentric builder with a serious affinity for American classic design, Naosuke and Tomiko finally believe they have found the key to constructing the home they've always wanted. The only problem now is that in order to obtain the proper permits and acquire the materials that will set their dream into motion, they must first present the plan to Tomiko's notoriously conservative father, a stubborn traditionalist who is more than willing to contest every detail of the unusual home right down to the last nail.
