In this interesting Japanese drama, a journalist travels to a tiny fishing village outside Tokyo to learn more about traditional customs and culture. There he carefully watches the locals going about their daily business. Among those observed are a recovered alcoholic caring for his crippled wife; a frustrated groom whose marriage remains unconsummated; a mother and her impoverished daughter; and an old man, living aboard his boat, who reminisces about his past.
