In a slow-paced narrative interspersed with close-ups of tomatoes, a bottle, and similar animate or inanimate artifacts, this film carefully unfolds the story of how a musician gives a ride to a little girl as he is peddling along on his bicycle, and after an encounter with a man incongruously playing away on a piano in an open field, the two take off for northern Japan without thinking of telling the girl's parents -- who are going to be understandably upset when their daughter appears to have been kidnapped. The police start their hunt for the "kidnapper," as he and the girl remain oblivious to the furor stirred up by her supposed abduction -- but not for long, the police are coming closer by the minute, ignoring all the tomatoes and bottles in their path.
