This Japanese comedy is about a hobo who has saved a great deal of money over the years, keeping it taped to his side. After he is arrested for trying to stiff a restaurant, he meets a female hobo who cons people out of cash by telling them she is an A-bomb victim. They stay together for a little while, but one morning he awakes to find that she has left with all his money. While looking for her, he meets two abandoned children and takes them to his house. Waiting for him is a letter from the female hobo saying that she has wisely invested all his money and would like to marry him.
